A Golden Week Visitor


Golden Week, the spring holiday in late April/early May in Japan, often brings rarities or semi-rarities...........


And today it brought a Saunders Gull.




This is the 3rd time I've seen this species in Hokkaido and the first time in Hakodate.










It's really a bird of southern Japan, where it is a regular winter visitor...........




Hopefully the first of a flurry of interesting birds this Golden Week..............
