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.

The Netherlands 1

Swans in the Waterweg

In the same area:

Oystercatcher,  Scholekster. On the look-out for scholletjes (flounder) or oysters?

Tern, Visdiefje. Although diefje means small robber and the name suggests the bird steals fish, I think the name is derived from the English word dive. A bird that dives for fish.

Coot, Meerkoet. Showing off it's huge feet.
