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.

キリアイ, Broad-billed Sandpiper

I like this bird. It can be hard to distinguish when 1000s of birds line the shores of Kyushu in migration season, so when this single one flew in on our Butagoya marsh I was quite glad.

note the dragonfly!

When you look well you can see his tongue.

With Red-necked tint, トウネン
