Sunosaki, Tateyama

In spite of the bad weather, there was plenty to see at a small fishing port in Sunosaki, Tateyama.

A Common Sandpiper (Isoshigiイソシギ) was foraging on a tiny patch of green by the port.

A White Wagtail (Hakusekireiハクセキレイ) came right up to our car.

A young Vega Gull (Segurokamomeセグロカモメ) was pecking something on the rock.

a male Meadow Bunting (Hoojiroホオジロ)

a female Meadow Bunting

Tree Sparrows (Suzumeスズメ) and Meadow Buntings were sharing the feeding ground.

Every time a fishing boat came back to the port from its day's work, gulls, crows and kites started circling above it.

There must have been nearly 100 of them all together.

It was a miserable day all day, I mean, weather-wise. Very unfortunate for bird-watching. sigh...
