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.

Black-winged Stilt, セイタカシギ 1

The fields won’t be short of water for a while after these rainy weeks. Some waders returned early from their summer business up north. I went over for a look after Obon and found this juvenile Stilt all by himself among the Plovers and Sandpipers.

2 Wood Sandpipers タカブシギ keeping him or her from harm...?

It looks so young and fragile. Will it be there tomorrow?
