November 19th, late afternoon. 2 Birds were flying north-west of Nokonoshima. They didn't come close, but the blue sky made them clearly visible.

We started off on a cold morning, wearing winter jackets, hats and mufflers. But as the sun rose the world warmed up and in the afternoon, it felt like summer again. 4 Seasons on 1 day. There were 20+ Mandarin ducks in the first pond, as well as some Pochards. We heard some other winter birds as well. In the morning, before the sun came out very few butterflies were seen, but afterwards they suddenly seemed everywhere. All in all, an exciting day
Many pretty Thunberg's Chives, ヤマラッキョウ were flowering
