Thanks Tobias - there's one later at about 5:20.

I am pretty sure I saw a male Redstart as well, but didn't get it on video.

I've checked the Egrets and one I had marked as an Intermediate is a Little 
Egret, while another I hadn't marked is a Great Egret.

The Cormorants are Great Cormorants (I gather the Red Faced would only be seen 
in Hokkaido) but I did see a Japanese Cormorant in Hiroshima which I didn't get 
on video.

That just leaves one unknown at 4:50 which may be another Brambling, but 
without being able to see the wings it's hard to tell.
