Aisatsu

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.

First waders of autumn

Obon is over, the migration of shore birds should start. After a day of rain I drove to the fields to check it out. Sure enough, there they were! I went over the top with my camera, also because the school lessons haven't started yet and I got time. So, way too many photo's but here we go:

Long-toed Stint, ヒバリシギ







Temminck:s Stint,  オジロトウネン

Red-necked Stint, トウネン in winter plumage, so without the red neck now.

Black-winged Stilt, セイタカシギ



A Red-necked Stint at its feet



Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, ウズラシギ





Little Ringed Plover コチドリPlenty of those
