Some common birds at this time of year posing for the camera…
Summer stuff is arriving all the time: Stejneger’s Stonechat, Chestnut-cheeked Starling, Common Reed Bunting etc etc. The above Red-flanked Bluetail was in Yakumo yesterday and this Little Ringed Plover was near Hakodate today.
Waders have started appearing: this Bar-tailed Godwit was near Oshamanbe.
A few Wood Sandpipers were also around as well as some Kentish Plover. Little Ringed Plovers are summer breeders and are in many locations now.
