On a sunny but windy day, I drove to Kujukuri hoping to see some interesting seabirds.
My first ever sighting of this species:) Yay!
Lots of Common Terns
I was a bit confused because they didn't look like what I had known as Common Terns with a red beak. I learnt that the ones seen in the UK and these are a different subspecies and the colour of their beaks is the biggest difference between them.
A male Little Tern (Koajisashiコアジサシ) was trying hard to attract his mate:)
Over the water, hundreds or even thousands of Streaked Shearwaters (Oomizunagidoriオオミズナギドリ) were shearing over the water.
It was a glorious day!
