That's that..............


A totally and utterly crap picture of an Oriental Honey Buzzard high in the sky near my apartment a couple of days ago. There were 2 of them, presumably just arrived from the south and slowly drifting over Hakodate..................the last of the spring migrants I guess.

The spring migration is just about over and it wasn't a vintage year. Maybe the weather wasn't helpful plus I was a  bit sick at thes start of the month or too busy to do much birding later on. Perhaps the autumn will compensate.......

At Kamiiso today there were a couple of Grey-tailed Tattlers, 1 Pintail, 2 Goosander and 2 Wigeon. Oriental Reed Warblers, Common Cuckoo, Siberian Stonechats and Chestnut-eared Buntings are singing on the outskirts of town but otherwise not much to report............

  1. The birds don’t always cooperate for the best picture, but it sure is great to see them.
