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.

Today's waders,

Birds are on the move. It's coming and going of migrators. This is what I saw today (Aug 27) at the usual fields west of Fukuoka city:

 3 Black-winged Stilts, セイタカシギ
Maybe a family with 1 young bird, though the other 2 seem young as well.

Redshank, アカアシシギ

Getting chased around a bit by the Stilts

below with one of many Wood Sandpipers, タカブシギ

5 Red-necked Stints, トウネン

Golden Plover, ムナグロ A number of these birds flew in, at least 5. But they disappeared soon in the thick grass. Just 1 stayed behind to pose for me.

Long-toed Stint, ヒバリシギ Just 1 bird showed itself briefly.  

Stopping briefly at the river I saw 2 Terek Sandpipers, ソリハシシギ 1 with a bad leg, 足が悪い
