A night away

Eurasian Jay

We spent last night camping (well actually we slept in a cabin). There were lots of birds around but not many photos. Most interesting was a Grey Nightjar which was singing all night. Amazingly I saw it fly near our cabin in broad daylight the next morning but of course I didn’t have my camera handy.

Several Jays were around and posed for some photos.

Other stuff at this location included Eurasian Woodcock, Blue-and-white Flycatcher, Siberian Blue Robin, Brown-headed and Japanese Thrush, Eastern Crowned Warbler and Japanese Green Pigeon.

We were in Esan on Monday. Mountain Hawk-Eagle, White-tailed Eagle, Steller’s Sea Eagle. Glaucous-winged Gull and Harlequin Ducks were all around but not a great day for photos although the above Peregrine posed nicely.

This Eurasian Jay was also pretty tame………………
