Bird Tour Report



Yesterday and today I ran a birding tour in the Fukuoka area for two guests from the UK. Conditions were quite challenging, however we saw a total of 66 species and heard an additional 5.

Highlights included Black-faced Spoonbill, Far Eastern Curlew, Great Knot, Japanese Cormorant, Grey-headed Lapwing, Asian Stubtail, , Japanese Thrush, Red-flanked Bluetail, Daurian Redstart, Grey Bunting, Chestnut-eared Bunting, and Rustic Bunting.

We also enjoyed watching dozens of feeding among clover flowers and seeding vegetation in the pouring rain – the subject of a separate post. Below is the complete species list together with a few photos.
