Ecology Park

The first visit since we came back from our holiday in Wales.

Quiet lake

or not?

Four Little Egrets (Kosagiコサギ) flew down to the lake,

tried to land on a tiny island all together and

perched in a tree by the water briefly but they all took off shortly after.

Are they on the way south for the winter?

Raccoon Dogs (Tanukiタヌキ) were by the lake, grooming each other and one of them stayed all morning snoozing:)

A pair of Spotbilled Ducks (Karugamoカルガモ)

A female Teal (Kogamoコガモ) swam out of the reedbed and started preening herself on the island. She seems to be the only Kogamo and is the first of the season.

Two Kingfishers (Kawasemiカワセミ) turned up on the lake, a male and a female, and they chased each other like mad. Eventually, they settled on either side of the lake.

A Japanese Rat Snake (Aodaishoアオダイショウ) was swimming and a Little Grebe (Kaitsuburiカイツブリ) was chasing it! (I only noticed the bird when I put down my camera! You can see half of him...) Was it from curiosity or anger? interesting!
