Inage Kaihin Beach

The Little Tern season has come again and I went to Inage Kaihin Park to help put up the ropes around the area where Little terns are likely to make their colony.

The project leader said he'd seen 2 little terns already, so, fingers crossed!

After the hard work, I walked in the park and looked for the signs of spring:)


This Black-headed Gull (Yurikamomeユリカモメ) turned into summer plumage already.
BH gulls don't breed in the area so today could be the last day to see them on this beach for a while.

On the concrete breakwater were a Whimbrel (Chushakushigiチュウシャクシギ),
Sanderlings (Miyubishigiミユビシギ),
 and Wigeons (Hidorigamoヒドリガモ).

Whimbrels and Sanderlings are stopping on their way to their breeding grounds and Wigeons are wintering birds and most of them have left for their breeding grounds.

Some Greater Scaups (Suzugamoスズガモ) were still there with the Wigeons.

Another BH Gull was foraging on the shore, busy running up and down!
