Another absentee

Common Redpoll

Another species conspicious by its absence this winter: a Common Redpoll. This one was at Oshamanbe 2 or 3 years ago. We see these most winters, sometimes in big influxes, but not so far this winter. Where are all the small birds?

  1. Hi Stuart, there was that male Daurian Redstart in Hakodate during this week – a stunning looking bird – if you have images from previously? But otherwise as you say, very quiet for smaller birds. Plus a magnificent, male Mandarin Duck….

    1. Hi Tony, the redstart doesn’t make it this far downstream this year, seemingly……….. although I see plenty most winters.
