Birdwatching in Maioka Koen (February 14, 2010)

After raining for a few days, I visited the park again to take pictures of woodcock. 

There was no woodcock but a Solitary Snipe, though it was bit far away.....

Some good photos of common species likely Varied  Tits, Great Tits, Japanese Pygmy Woodpecker, Hawfinch and Bull-headed Shrike were taken while a small flock of Chinese Bamboo Partridge was seen very well.

A bit quiet day. 

There was no highlight of the day.

Although a pair of Woodcock was seen likely a week before, they were too far to photograph.

Highlight of the day was a Water Rail.

A female Black-faced Bunting was so tame and allowed me to take photos within 2-3 meter.

Unlikely last time, there was no Solitary Snipe.

A pair of Eurasian Woodcock was doubtlessly highlight of the day.

While a Common Kingfisher was seen well.
