Tomakomai Cruise -unexpected encount-

In this cruise, I saw three unexpected species.
White-billed Diver. I first saw its summer plumage.
It was very beautiful.
 There were two individuals.
White-billed Diver is a very large species, like White-tailed Eagle. But it had cautious at our boat and hided in the sea.


Red-legged Kittiwake juvenile!!
It was very friendly, flied and hovered front of me.

Sea Turtle (species unknown) and Fulmer.
Sea Turtle is scarce in Hokkaido. Where does it come from?

  1. You're really lucky again! The Yellow-billed diver in breeding plumage, something I can only dream of. The kittiwake also looks extremely cute.
