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.

Migrating waders 1

The season has started, birds are on the move.
I should really keep my blog updated, especially during migration.
Now I will translate this into Japanese using “well known software”, which will probably render it incomprehensible…


On August 22nd these plovers and stints were sighted west of Fukuoka city, not far from the famous mudflats of Imazu. It was a very hot day and we had not had any rain for some time. There were very few water-logged fields and I was wondering were the birds would go for a meal this year.
