Fukushimagata, Niigata, Japan
November 5, 2012
Mr Honma and I checked out two wetland areas around Niigata today. First we went to Fukushimagata and were treated by this young goshawk which landed on a post behind the bird observatory for a few moments. She looked around just for a bit before departing and leaving us with a warm glow to the start off the day.
Secondly, we went to Hyoko and found a variety of ducks and Whooper Swans which have safely made it and which are likely to stay for the winter months.
near Fukushimagata again in the afternoon.
