I went to Kemigawa no Hama to check if there is any sign of the Little Tern. Sadly, I saw no terns but other birds pleased me on the beach and on land.
A lone Grey-tailed Tattler (Kiashishigiキアシシギ) was foraging on rocks by a pier.
I walked slowly and slowly to get closer to him, but he didn't seem to mind much.
A lone Turnstone (Kyojoshigiキョウジョシギ) was on the other side of the pier, foraging.
Rather gentle begging-like calls somewhere in the park caught my attention. There was a Thick-billed Crow's nest (Hashibutogarasuハシブトガラス) with 3 chicks in it.
A huge flock of Cormorants (Kawauカワウ) were flying out on the sea.
I thought they were shearwaters, but an aqueintance of mine, who is an ornithologist, told me they were cormorants. A bit disappointed, not that I don't like cormorants but that shearwaters are rarer.
I don't think I'll ever get used to the ugly, disgusting views of Tokyo Bay in the background...
