July is always a quiet month in south Hokkaido and for various reasons July 2021 has been even quieter than usual.
It’s been really really hot too. Last Sunday it was foggy in the morning which provided temporary relief. Not great for photos but juvenile Ospreys were practicing fishing and the first of the ‘autumn’ waders were passing through.

I’m puzzled Stuart! Are there both stints and Sanderling in the photo?! Hope you are enjoying all the Olympics sports?!
Hi Tony, the top 5 and the bottom 1 are all Red-necked Stints, the 2 ‘middle’ ones are Sanderlings. Perspective may be making size differences less apparent………
Hope your waders keep heading south…. still hot as hades here !
Pretty Hades-like here this summer too………..
