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.

Daijugarami, May 1st B

A small army of  Black-faced Spoonbills, クロツラヘラサギ  patrolling the coast. 

In front a gull that I think is a common Herring Gull, セグロカモメ but who knows...

The small waders at the water line also showed quite a bit of red.
Red-necked Stints,トウネン in summer plumage

With the incoming tide the water is coming closer and closer

And suddenly they all fly

At the back of the crowd the bigger birds were Bar-tailed Godwits, オオソリハシシギ

Black-tailed Godwit, オグロシギ

Long-billed Dowitcher, オオハシシギ

All 3 of them below

Uzura-chan, my favorite was there, too
Sharp-tailed Sandpiper, ウズラシギ

Black-faced Spoonbills, クロツラヘラサギ

I didn't move much, so I didn't take any photos of Curlews and Whimbrels 
Maybe next time.
