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.

Imazu update May 19th

The strong southern winds and heavy rain should have brought us some wings. One of the first things I saw was not a bird, but the fox. Still here? Here again? He (or she) disappeared in the same bush as before...

Leisurely walking the deserted road, Japanese red fox, キツネ

3 Mute Swans, コブハクチョウ had come to pay us a visit. An adult and 2 juveniles

They like to act in formation. I wonder why.

A flock of Egrets flew in. About 22 birds, half of them Cattle Egret, アマサギ, the other half Intermediate Egret, チュウサギ

It took a while for them to settle down

Other birds include Zitting Cisticola, セッカ

Meadow Bunting, ホオジロ

Yet another 2 Bull-headed Shrike, モズ fledgelings. I keep running into these.

Great Reed Warbler, オオヨシキリ

The scene at the flats during high tide, with 20+ Whimbrels, チュウシャクシギ and 3 Black-faced Spoonbills, クロツラヘラサギ
