2017 Best Of #7


Some more photos from earlier in the year, these are all from a trip to north Hokkaido in late June...................


We go camping up there every summer.


The bird of these trips is always Siberian Rubythroat. They were common all over the capes and grasslands...............these 3 shots were taken just in front of the tent at our campsite.




It is a very photogenic species which I never tire of..............




They don't breed in south Hokkaido alas....................














Middendorffs Warbler is another species we don't get down in south Hokkaido..............





Some species down here are also common up there................

  1. The Siberian Rubythroat is enough to make us all green with envy - although perhaps it should be scarlet in this case.

  2. Yes, super shots of the rubythroat. Those poses remind me of wren, robin, wheatear and more besides. No wonder the twitchers go crazy to see one.
