A truly amazing start to an amazing safari! Starting early with the rare and endangered Japanese red crowned cranes in the river, we moved timeously to catch their arrival at a nearby crane sanctuary, before the real highlight of the day, the interaction between several white-tailed eagles and the cranes. We finished up with a sunset shoot, watching and photographing the cranes as they flew over the sunset.
Major sightings of the day:
- Many Japanese red crowned cranes. (Great interaction between the cranes and the white-tailed eagles)
- White-tailed eagles
- Stellar sea eagle
- Red foxes
