On this day (September 29th)..................
September 29th 2013. Not a great picture by any stretch but I was quite excited by this scene 3 years ago today. A Long-tailed Skua mugging a Common Tern offshore at Yakumo. This is usually something that happens way offshore and I never witness, the Skua w...

A Pacific Diver near Yakumo this afternoon.............. The seasons are changing. On Sunday we went to Muroran to watch the raptor migration. I was hoping to get Oriental Honey Buzzard and Japanese Sparrowhawk shots but we were too late for both species. J...

Kingfishers in the morning
There is a local spot to photograph Kingfishers..................... Usually I avoid it because it involves hanging around and being bothered by mosquitoes and I always thought I could go there any time. The last couple of years it was monopolized by one ph...

Some more common waders..........
Sunday and Monday were dark overcast days but there were quite a few waders around........... North of Yakumo there was a flock containing several species. The inevitable Red-necked Stints were joined by a dozen or so Sanderling. And this lone Ruddy Turnsto...

Local specialities
Hakodate is famous for seafood and in particular crab...................the Black Tailed Gull above fits in nicely then. Not much else around, here's some Red Necked Stint, part of a small flock at Kamiiso this morning.

Back through the typhoon #1
We headed home through the typhoon............... It wasn't that bad, very windy with some driving rain. There were a couple of gaps in the weather however and during one gap we found a flock of Red Necked Stints on Usu Beach. It was difficult to hold the c...

Some late waders............
A Bar-tailed Godwit and a Grey Plover near town this afternoon................ Nothing much at Yakumo, Onuma or Sawara but at least there were a couple of common wader species nearer Hakodate. The Godwit was pretty tame and was feeding happily, sticking its...

'Winter' visitor
It's a crap picture, a scruffy gull on a garbage strewn beach.............but it's the first 'winter' visitor to arrive in 2016/17. An adult Glaucous Winged Gull. A beautiful clear late summer day day but not much around birdwise. Red-necked Stints, Grey-ta...

Ubiquitous
Red Necked Stints are ubiquitous at this time of year.................... We camped near Tomakomai and one afternoon we checked all the local wader sites. There were a lot of pools and other potentially good spots for waders but I just couldn't find any any...
