Bobbing about

No doubt about today’s star bird: we went to the coast and took a boat trip to see the Japanese Murrelet, a fantastic little auk that gave us some terrific views.  They’re proud of their murrelets in Kadogawa, as we discovered when a man from the local government turned up to take our picture and present us with a gift bag including a cuddly murrelet each.

Tomorrow we bid farewell to sunny and warm Kyushu and head to the other end of the country, to freezing Hokkaido.
