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.

5 days around Kyushu, part 4

After the party we drove to that highway service area with the fresh flowers on the super clean toilets (not unusual here in Japan) to spend the night and drove to Miike, the same place as last year, to see if there were any Nuthatches. Guess my surprise to see a row of photographers, exactly like 2014, to see the exact same bird, 

the Forest Wagtail, イワミセキレイ

The nuthatches were there, too. I could hear them high up in the trees. With my binoculars I followed them on their way upside down. If only one would come all the way down....

Eurasian Nuthatch, ゴジュウカラ

We even found that big, interesting fungus at the same place.
