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.

A windy day in Kabashima

It was blowing 30 knots or more, the flycatcher that we had come to see had left. Through the inlet little birds were blown in and kind of crash-landed in front of us. There were Warblers, and Stonechats. We heard the voice of Japanese Robins,

Siberian Stonechat,  ノビタキ

It was awfully cold, but insects started to appear, creating a sense of spring

From above the waves around the cape seemed enormous. Shearwaters were having fun.
Streaked Shearwater,  オオミズナギドリ

But this captain most certainly not.
