Autumn is a busy time for many reasons. There are many school events, work is starting to prepare for the next fiscal year, and yet information about the appearance of birds is relentless (thank goodness…). I am forced to think about getting around efficiently on my limited days off.
First of all, there was a juvenile Lesser White-fronted Goose. There had been reports of sightings for some time, but I had not been able to go see them. Fortunately, it was still lounging in the same spot, so I was able to find it quickly.
Next, I went further afield to look for Mugimaki Flycatcher. The previous visitor commented that there was no sign of them this morning, but after a short wait, they did show up.
