Narashino Ryokuchi

Narashino Ryokuchi lies between the Minami-funabashi Station and Yatsu Higata Nature Observation Centre along one of the busiest motorways in Japan but once you are in it you can see the mudflat on one side and trees on the other and it gives you a rather nice walk.

A flock of Azure-winged Magpies (Onagaオナガ) were eating berries.

You can hear them well before you actually see them:)

A young White Wagtail (Hakusekireiハクセキレイ) was busy running up and down by a small stream.

A small snack, eh?

Noisy young Eastern Great Tits (Shiju-karaシジュウカラ) were foraging in group and one of them was pecking a tree like crazy!

Preening is important too!

The cicadas are absolutely deafening... 

and cicada skins are everywhere...
