Buller's Shearwater was one of main target of this cruise.

It was often sleeping.
"I'm sleepy"

Flesh-footed Shearwater.

Another target was Red-legged Kittiwake. Although we searched flock of Kittiwake one by one, no one contained...

Tomakomai, Hokkaido. 29th/Oct/2011.


  1. You saw some nice stuff on this cruise, I've never seen either of those 2 Shearwater species......

  2. What a great series of photos! The Buller's Shearwater really stands out among the group of other birds.

  3. It was lucky day for me.
    Flesh-hoot is often observed in this cruise, but it was so far to take phoro.
    Buller's is seen in only autumn, about 5 individuals in present.

    Thank you comments.
