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.

The last weeks of a long hot summer... left-overs of September.

Summer birds are gathering, filling their stomachs, getting ready for the trek south

The Zitting Cisticola, セッカ posing with its catch of the day

Usually in small groups, but now just one bird: Black-winged Stilt, セイタカシギ

Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, ウズラシギ

Bar-tailed Godwit, オオソリハシシギ

This wagtail won't go far; it's one of our resident birds. Grey Wagtail, キセキレイ

The fine marking of its back make a pleasant contrast with the muddy environment.

Nearby on the side of the road:

What are they? Bees or wasps?
