A quiet start to December

It's been snowing a lot the last 2 days but there was a break this afternoon. No car today so I took a short walk down the river where I saw the above Great Egret.

I was hoping for some Waxwings but nothing doing there. Other stuff around included a few Dusky Thrush, a male Daurian Redstart, a lone Wren, a drake Goosander and a female Wigeon....................


  1. Seems odd to see a Great Egret standing on snow. Does this species stay on Hokkaido all winter?

    1. Hi David. Yes they are mainly winter visitors here............
