River-mouth of the Hamada

There were about 90 Black-headed Gulls (Yurikamomeユリカモメ) floating, pecking, flying and arguing by the vent.

I didn't see any other types of gull and I was wondering why.

Some brave ducks were trying to get their share.

Gadwalls (Okayoshigamoオカヨシガモ)

Ducks and coots away from the gulls looked rather relaxed in the winter sun.

a Greater Scaup (Suzugamoスズガモ)

 Wigeons (Hidorigamoヒドリガモ)

a Teal (Kogamoコガモ)

A male Blue Rock Thrush (Isohiyodoriイソヒヨドリ) was watching the feast from the bank.

A noisy family of Azure-winged Magpies (Onagaオナガ) found some berries in the trees by the water.

I am really glad that I decided to take the walk on that day.
