The sky was very dull and grey, which wasn't a great day for birding but, anyway, there I was.
It was at low tide and many, many egrets and herons looked happy!
So did cormorants:)
a Great Egret (Daisagiダイサギ)
a Grey Heron (Aosagiアオサギ)
Black-winged Stilts (Seitakashigiセイタカシギ)
A Black-tailed Gull (Uminekoウミネコ) flew towards me and landed only a few yards away from me.
At the lowerst tide, the mudflats look totally different and rather deserted.
Huge numbers of Cormorants (Kawauカワウ) were chilling out with a couple of Grey Herons and Black-tailed Gulls:)
I went to the observatory to check the sighting board and to wait for the tide to come in.
He was the one who pleased me while I was having a cup of coffee:)
