"Little Heron" Day 1

Little Heron (Butorides striatus) is a common summer visitor to Kyushu. It is called ササゴイ(笹五位/sasa-goi) in Japanese, which means 'bamboo bittern'. I started seeing them quite often recently around the harbour. Yesterday I went out and caught one juvenile bird feeding on a fish. However, the bird was quite shy and I wasn't so satisfied with the shots, so it's gonna be 'day 1' for this Little Heron project. Next time I'll try sneaking and get some better shots!
