Midsummer Road Trip 2023 #1

Latham’s Snipe

We took a short 4-day trip around the Sapporo area earlier this week…

I got a half-lifer on the way up as we drove north at night. A Siberian Thrush singing. Unfortunately it was still pitch black so I couldn’t find it…so that will have to wait to make it onto my J-list.

We arrived in the Mukawa area in the early morning and the usual species were present.

Black-browed Reed Warbler

Most interesting birds were a pair of Japanese Crane (presumably with chick) but they were impossible to photograph well due to them being in the long grass as well as the harsh summer light.
