Bird News by Jason Loghry

On Sunday, after such a remarkable day of birding, time allowed for longer views of most of the species we had observed on Saturday. New species seen included a brief glimpse of a Siberian Rubythroat, a Hume’s Leaf Warbler, both male and female White-throated Rock Thrushes, a Great-spotted Woodpecker (on the island) and Japanese Sparrowhawk. I’ve included some digiscoped photos taken before heading back to the mainland on Sunday afternoon.
