Egrets til Dusk

Egrets at roost

Niigata, Japan

September 16, 2012

Yesterday Mr Honma took me to a roosting area for egrets. There seemed to be at least 3 kinds: Great, Intermediate and Little Egrets as well as a sprinkling of herons, including Grey and Striated.

We were there from just after 4 til just after 6. It's getting darker earlier but it's still hot. Today is 35c in Niigata. A good day for posting on a blog.
