Aisatsu

This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Spring in Kyushu 2


Some Robins flew in and hid in the Rhododendrons. Tired from a long journey they didn't come out much on the first day and when they did they skirted the dark edges of the bush.

Compared to last year there were very few thrushes, but this one hung around for a while.

This little obscure lady had some birders confused for a while, but she was finally agreed upon as being a female Siberian Blue Robin
