Tomakomai Cruising in winter

I organized Tomakomai bird cruising at 20/Feb/2010.

This day was good weather: weak wind, low wave, and shine.

 I could see many flocks of Velvet Scoter and Long-tailed Duck.
But it was far, they flew away....

In this cruise, some Auk and Guillemot were able to be seen.

 This bad photo is Least Auklet (Aethia pussilla), several individuals were observed but it was difficult to take a photo especially my manual focus lens (Ai 500/4P).
I decided to use an auto-focus lens (Ai AF 300/4D) next cruising.

Brünnich's Guillemots (Uria lomvia)  were relatively near.

And Parakeet Auklet  was confirmed by my friend's photo.

After Cruising, I went Mukawa and saw Rough-legged Buzzard.
