More from the dark pool…
Only 5 species visited the forest pool but some of them were interesting…like the above Grey Bunting.
And this juvenile Japanese Robin.
As you can see lots of noise reduction in these images.
In addition to the dark it was raining and very very humid. And there were loads of mosquitoes too.
A shy one
The forest pool allows us to photograph normally shy species. Like the above Grey Bunting. But also this one……………..
A male Japanese Robin. I only ever see them in autumn in this place for some reason.
Another visit to the pool
We passed by the forest pool twice again this last weekend. And it was so dark……………..
The above male Grey Bunting put in an appearance at least.
This Olive-backed Pipit was not at the pool………….
The dark pool #1
On the way back from east Hokkaido we stopped off at the well known forest pool near Shikotsuko. It was very dark but a couple of the local specialties put in an appearance including 2 Grey Buntings (not males as you can see).
Another difficult species to photograph is Grey Bunting. They occur in dark wet forests and tend to keep down in the long sasa grass.
A male visited the pool a couple of times………………
