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.

Terek Sandpiper, ソリハシシギ

A fairly common migrant that we see every year around Fukuoka, but never in big numbers. Easily distinguished from other sandpipers by the upturned bill. The name Terek comes from the river Terek in Russia.

With pink colored snail eggs at the back .

Pretty orange-colored legs in summer
