I went to Sanbanze which was famous tideland for shorebirds in Chiba prefecture.
This photo is Far eastern Curlew.
I could see Eurasian Curlew, Bar-tailed Godwit, Sanderling, and Kentish Plover.
Water Pipits foraged around horbor.
There was a narrow reed habitat in Sambanze, Reed Bunting and Fan-tailed Wabler stayed occurred.
Male Reed Buntings started turning to summer plumage, many camera-mans tried to take photo of them because Reed Bunting regarded as a winter bird around Tokyo.
But I live in Hokkaido, this species is a summer bird in Hokkaido. I didn't have so interest for this species.
I had much interest for Fan-tailed Wabler which did not distribute in Hokkaido.
I heard a female Bufflehead stayed in this place.
I could see, but it was enough for seeing through scope but so far for camera.
All photos in Chiba prefecture. 14 or 19/Mar/ 2010.
