On this day (May 3rd)....................


May 3rd 2013.

A mushy record shot of a Red-rumped Swallow in Kikonai 5 years ago today. Terrible weather..........drizzle and poor light I recall but the camera was just about up to the task of a BIF shot at least. This is a scarce overshoot visitor to Hokkaido: I've only ever seen this species twice here and both times were in early May..................

  1. It always makes you wonder whether you would have had more sightings if you were out in the field more often. I know that since I retired that has been my experience - not with all rarities of course but often enough to know that increased vigilance makes a difference.

    1. Being self-employed means I have quite a lot of free time and,yes, more time means more birds..........!
