I organized Tomakomai cruise, my first time held in April. Though I could not expect species observed in this time, it became good cruise.
Hudreds of Short-tailed Shearwaters migrated to east.
Summer plumage of Long tail duck which is difficult to see in Hokkaido.
Flock of Velver Scoter. I could observe them at short range. Scoters are very timid, run away as soon as the boat approaches. Was it mating?
