A couple of typhoons have hit Japan recently when we were off from work, which kept us from going bird-watching. Those typhoons finally brought an autumnal atmosphere and gradually we have heard news about birds arriving to winter here in Japan.
On a sunny Saturday morning, we paid a brief visit to Yatsuhigata to see if any migrant birds had arrived there.
On the tops of the wooden poles were resting
We only stayed there for an hour and a bit and the high tide didn't help us see as many birds as we could have at the low tide, but still it was a lovely walk and it is always worth a visit.
