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.

Isahaya 2

I didn't feel like driving back yet so I camped out and woke up to the setting of a full moon.

In Isahaya many birders and photographers look for the raptors. There were Kestrels and Harriers, mostly far away, I didn't take the camera out.
Except for this young female Hen harrier, ハイロチュウヒ (2nd winter, I was told)

And for this Osprey, ミサゴ sitting in a field for quite some time. That seemed a bit odd.

I like the smaller birds and found a number of Siberian Stonechats, ノビタキ still there, dressed in their winter clothes. 

A flock of about 10 Common Starlings, ホシムクドリ sitting on the wires. 

Northern Lapwings, タゲリ gleaming in the sun

The usual winter birds. I want to go back to see some more.
