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.

Yellow-bellied Tit, キバラガラ

It took 3 visits to the park. The first time I didn't see the bird at all. I was tired and stood there dreaming away... the Goldcrests and Long-tailed Tits looked so pretty... When the target bird made an appearance I was gone with the fairies. The second time I got to see it. High, high up, in poor lighting it showed up just once. The third time was better. The pretty little thing sat in my view for seconds at the time and it was singing! I was all excited and that lasted the whole day.

Japanese Bush Warbler, ウグイス



Lady Joo, the Daurian Redstart, ジョウビタキ
