In this week, I stay in Tokyo. For transportation, I chose ferry to see birds.
I met a Hong-Kong birder in this ferry and did birding together.
Most birds changed to summer plumage.
In Fukushima area we could see many Murrelets, Ancient and Japanese.
I felt the occurrence ratio of Ancient:Japanese = 7:3.
Other birds I saw were Diver sp, Slaty-backed Gull, Black-backed Gull, Black-legged Kittiwake, Pomarine Skua, Arctic Skua, Red-necked Phalarope.
The Hong Kong birder will go to Bonin Island, so his accommodation was Hamamatu-cho which was near port of Bonin ferry.
But he booked Hotel in Hamamatu...
Hamamatu-cho and Hamamatu are different.
Hamamatu-cho is in Tokyo but Hamamatu is a city of Shizuoka prefecture.
It is difficult for not foreigner but Japanese...
