A Spoonbill..................

A Eurasian Spoonbill enjoying the warm spring weather in the padis outside Hakodate this afternoon.

A crap picture; into the light, cropped a lot and handheld out of the car window at 700mm with my misbehaving teleconverter. It flew off as soon as I got out.

This is only the 4th time I've seen this species in Japan: it's a bit scarce especially up here in Hokkaido.


  1. At least you were able to get a picture......

    1. The light/background wasn't right for a decent shot anyway............so I tell myself.

  2. Wonderful to have seen it there as if is scare in your part of the world. Have a great week ahead.
