A crap photo but quite a scarce bird in north Japan and the 300th species I’ve seen in Hokkaido.
A Chinese Pond Heron west of town today. It flew off and disappeared into the trees before I could get a decent shot.
Not much else around: lots of Osprey fishing off the coast, a couple of stray Great Scaup, flocks of Japanese Green Pigeon etc.
Large numbers of Black-tailed Gulls were hunting flying ants everywhere.
