On this day (December 5th)....................


December 5th 2014.

A female Merlin just outside town 3 years ago today. This is a regular winter visitor but usually we only see them flash by across the road and then disappear into the fields.............this one was obligingly atop a streetlight................

  1. I was so excited to see a Merlin in Japan but I haven't seen one in years. Nice portrait.

    I hope things are going well for you two. We will be back in Sapporo sometime in August/September probably for an extended period (months). We'll have to get together and spend a cold evening in a car waiting for an owl or something like that.
