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.

Isahaya on a windless day 3, Woodcock, ヤマシギ and some more

Another pleasant surprise, a wandering woodcock, in open grass at midday... what did I do to get this lucky?

Eurasian Woodcock,  ヤマシギ

Other birds in the vicinity:

Water Pipit,  タヒバリ

Red-throated Pipit,  ムネアカタヒバリ

Kestrel, チョウゲンボウ  (female) 

A family of Hooded Crane,  ナベヅル

Many Penduline Tits,  ツリスガラ

Peregrine Falcon,  ハヤブサ

Kingfisher,  カワセミ (male) 

No photos of  Harriers of any kind. They were seen perched in trees and occasionally flying at a great distance. Maybe they don't like quiet windless days. Plus, you can't have it all, right?
