A familiar sight

Black-necked Grebe

The ports are beginning to fill up with birds……….

East of town there were 2 or 3 Great Crested Grebe, 1 Black-necked Grebe and small flocks of Wigeon and Scaup.

Black-necked Grebes are very common here in winter and most ports seem to have a few in them until early April.

A rainy Sunday

Black-crowned Night Heron

Sunday was a bit of a write-off because of the weather.

The Night Herons were still outside town as well as a few Pintail and a lone Osprey. In town last week near my apartment there were more Night Herons as well as Asian Brown Flycatcher, Brown Dipper, Varied Tit and Bull-headed Shrike.

Still warm, quite looking forward to the first chilly morning of the season…………
