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.

Sunday afternoon 1

Checked the fields in the afternoon, but saw very few birds. Few people too, so the ducks could roam around a fair bit.

Ducks on the road  Eurasian Wigeon, ヒドリガモ

On those days it's good to see the regulars, like the Common Kingfisher, カワセミ

And a male Daurian Redstart, ジョウビタキ

Across the river was the Eurasian Kestrel、チョウゲンボウ my only friend.
I'm hiding, but...Oops, he noticed me.

I was surprised to see this Japanese Wagtail, セグロセキレイ .It's a very common bird, but here at an unusual location
