Not so many species but a lot of waders passing through with most of them being Grey-tailed Tattlers: the default medium-sized shorebird of the region.
Still quiet birdwise and today was very windy………
Nothing interesting blown in but there was a lone Grey-tailed Tattler to the west of town. This is is the commonest spring wader in south Hokkaido.
Spring migration is still very slow. The calm sunny weather over the last couple of weeks might have meant most of the migrants have passed straight through. Today near my apartment there was a lone Asian Brown Flycatcher and yesterday in the west of town there were 2 Grey-tailed Tattler, 1 Brent Goose, I Goosander, 1 Wigeon and 1 Vega Gull.
I’ve also done something to my leg/back that is making walking difficult. It’s been present on and off for several weeks now. Probably sciatica and hopefully time will heal it…………..
There were loads of Grey-tailed Tattlers around this Sunday. This is the default medium sized passage wader in Japan………
Theye were everywhere today. I checked them all for Wandering Tattlers (a scarce bird here and a would be lifer) but nothing doing there…….
