Tomakomai Cruise -Kittiwakes and ...-

I organized cruise at 6th, almost Shearwaters had gone away. Instead of them, thousands of Kittiwakes stayed this sea area.

In this assemblage, Buller's Shearwater was on the sea.

I saw it 5 times. It was very exciting.

Many Red-throated Diver can be seen in this season.
 Now Brent are migration.
