Japan: Birding in the Land of the Rising Sun
By: Neil Gartshore
Japan sits in the Palearctic region, the same as the UK, and so provides both familiar and unfamiliar species for the visiting UK bird watcher, these include magnificent eagles and graceful cranes. Together with a very different culture, any trip to the country will be an experience. The talk is a compilation of a number of visits made over a period of 15 years and shares the experiences of Japanese culture and the country’s interesting birdlife.
