A snowy Friday


A crappy record shot of a Japanese Waxwing just outside town this afternoon................

Not much else around: the usual ducks (about 12 species), gulls (6 or 7 species), Hawfinch and Great Egret etc. Nearer my flat this week there was a late Red-flanked Bluetail and a Brown Dipper but not much else............

A load more snow today scuppered my plans to photograph the eagles up in Yakumo...................

On this day (November 3rd)...................


November 3rd 2013.

A drake American Wigeon near Hakodate 4 years ago today. Only the second time I'd ever seen this species (and I haven't seen one since) and my first outing with my new 7D Mark 2.

I check the wigeon flocks every year in the hope another one turns up. Maybe 2017 will see one appear locally again.............
