Kasai Rinkai Koen by the sea

Kasai Rinkai Koen, which is one of the best birding places in Tokyo, was my destination today to see a friend, who was in England when I was in Wales, and for her to see some Oystercatchers in the park.

We spotted an Oystercatcher (Miyakodoriミヤコドリ) within the first 10 minutes after we met each other!

At the seaside part of the park, we saw ...

Black-tailed Gull (Uminekoウミネコ)

Little Egret (Kosagiコサギ)

Grey Heron (Aosagiアオサギ)

a Great Crested Grebe (Kanmurikaitsuburiカンムリカイツブリ)
and Greater Scaups (Suzugamoスズガモ) resting & preening on the sand

Little Grebe (Kaitsuburiカイツブリ)

Red-necked Grebe (Hajirokaitsuburiハジロカイツブリ)

Many people with huge canon-like cameras were lining up on the spit and we later found out that a wintering Black-faced Spoonbill was their target.
