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.

Nokonoshima Island, 能古島

The collection of Noko Island photo's is growing, time to publish some. I often take the camera when I walk to the school were I work, but then forget to post the results... 
The summer had been interesting, with small flocks of about 15 Stints roaming the beach. 

Red-necked Stints, トウネン

A single Curlew on the rock wall on the south coast. Probably Far Eastern Curlew, ホウロクシギ

A group of Long-tailed Tits, エナガ occasionally flew in and out of the bush near the school

The resident Pacific Reef Herons. I wonder if they had a nest somewhere...

End of summer

I still feel sad about the trees that were cut last year, but their stumps are now colorful with fungi

Hornets became a problem. they built nests that had to be destroyed. Too bad. 

One of the many stray cats enjoying the sunshine one early morning in September. Do hornets sting them too? 

October came and Flycatchers gathered.

others were there but would not pose for me.

On the 14th the first female Daurian Redstart, ジョウビタキ

The view of the city below is not from Noko Island, but it could have been ;-)
