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.

Izumi 2, Ruddy Shelduck, アカツクシガモ

After watching the cranes flying at dawn we went to look for the Ruddy Shelduck that had somewhere taken a wrong turn and ended up in Kyushu all by itself. We had to search quite a bit, among the cranes and the common Shelducks, in the little canals, the fields and the gutters. Once it came out of hiding it became very conspicuous. Such a big duck stands out clearly. The crows also detected it right away and sent it off flying in no time.

Common Shelduck, ツクシガモ

Black-faced Spoonbill, クロツラヘラサギ

Northern Lapwing, タゲリ

Common Snipe, タシギ

Greater White-fronted Goose, マガン

Finally, the Ruddy Shelduck, アカツクシガモ

The next day we had more luck

My black friends are back again...
