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.

We started in Imazu where our Long-tailed Shrike was soon spotted.
We didn't notice any new ducks and when we checked out the river there were very few, next to no birds. Ehh?? It wasn't quite high tide yet, so we decided to continue towards the fields in the west.
And wherever we went we got the same surprise: very very few birds. Many had left, riding on the Northern winds and no others had arrived to fill the gaps... ?
