Another quiet one
Another slow weekend, getting not very good BIF shots of Green Pigeons and Ospreys. This young Red Fox was at Onuma. The 500 f4 is not an ideal lens for the tame foxes in Onuma............... The fox was by the side of the road in nice light. Still lots of ...

Some more Owls..................
I went back to the same forest on Monday and there was a different Ural Owl family in a different place............. These were in a more open area and even though it was raining it was a lot brighter than deep in the forest. They were a bit high up however...

2 weeks of nothing
Well it's been dark, foggy and drizzly for the last 12 days. The above Black Browed Reed Warbler was taken on this day just outside Hakodate 5 years ago (with my 400D/100-400). The weather was crap then too I see. Hopefully I'll get out and about soon and t...

Stoners on the weed
We took a short trip to central Hokkaido last week. Not much birding, the highlight was a stop at Yakumo (near home) where there was a very tame pair of Siberian Stonechat. They must have had a nest nearby in a big patch of weeds and didn't fly off as they ...

A day of errors.............

Busy
A Black Browed Reed Warbler at Oshamabe and an Osprey at Yakumo last Monday. Very busy this last week and despite the fine weather I couldn't get out much. Among the usual summer stuff I did notice an influx of Intermediate Egret into the ricefields though....

Kites
Some Black Kites at Yakumo last Monday at the end of my 4 day trip. A bit of a disappointing trip photography wise. Despite the great weather photo opps were scarce. I got my first Sand Martins of the year (at various locales), my first Grays Grasshopper Wa...

Narcissus in the mist............
