A morning on a campsite #1

Great Spotted Woodpecker

We had a night on a campsite last night…

After being serenaded by Jungle Nightjars all night (including a brief glimpse in the twilight) we were up at sunrise and there were lots of birds: a flyover White-tailed Eagle and Osprey, Japanese Green Pigeon, Brown Dipper, Grey Wagtail, several species of thrush…

Brown-headed Thrush

…and several species of woodpecker…

Breeding season in full swing as you can see.

Golden Week 2023 #1

Japanese Thrush

A very early rise and we were in one of the local parks…and in anticipation of some nice birds I took my big lens.

Nice to find some thrushes that weren’t Duskys.

Not a vintage morning for photos it must be said but a few nice birds around: Wryneck, Hawfinch, Japanese Grosbeak, Oriental Cuckoo, Latham’s Snipe, Russet Sparrow, Grey-headed Woodpecker…

What else will the next few days bring?
