Yoichi (visit 16)

It had been a little while since I had been out to Yoichi. Nice weather, though a little hot. More people hanging out in Yoichi itself than I imagined. I saw more birds than I had thought to see. It turned out to be a rather good trip. At first I thought it would be diminished by all the jet skis racing up and down the river this day. It was quite late before the cormorants roosted and a few other waterfowl were seen. Otherwise, more inland spots, and the ponds offered good glimpses of bird activity.
