Some more Spoonbill pics from earlier in the week. Apparently it’s gone now……….
I took a video of the Spoonbill at Yakumo. I balanced the 500 f4 lens on my knee as I sat down on an embankment……….
I thought the Spoonbill had left Yakumo.
But it hadn’t.
I could get a bit closer this time.
Not a vintage last few days for photos but a few interesting birds around at least: Black-winged Stilt, Green Sandpiper, Grey-tailed Tattler, Kentish Plover, Shoveler, Gadwall, Great Egret, Pacific Swift, Wryneck, Red-flanked Bluetail, Red-cheeked Starling, Black-throated Diver, White-fronted Goose………..
Most interesting was this briefly seen Eurasian Spoonbill. Only the 5th one I’ve seen in Japan.
