FIELDNOTE (Taira-jima)

■ 28th April ~ 2nd May 2018 @Taira-jima, Tokara Islands, Kagoshima

My first trip of bird watching to Taira-jima of Tokara Islands have finished being disappointing.
I saw 72 species during my visit.
This record is not so bad but I could not see any rare birds which I should expect....
except beautiful Ryukyu Robin. No Black Drongo, Ashy Drongo, Chestnut Bunting,
Ferruginous Flycatcher, Citrine Wagtail etc.
I hear that the migration of this spring is not so good.
My friend saw only 53 species in Taira-jima from 4/15 to 4/20 this spring season.
and he did observe 60 species from 4/30 to 5/6 last year.
No special birds except Daurian Starling, Swinhoe's Egret and Grey-backed Thrush.
May I expect spring migration of Taira-jima next year?
