It was windy but a lovely day. I finally felt that It's nice to be back in Japan. Because I finally started something that I wanted to do since I came back... sketch Japanese birds and scenery!
I visited this place with my friends to watch lapwings the other day and found this fabulous scenery of paddy field with little triangle haystacks. The mountain is so close! I couldn't help going back with my paint box.
Lapwing, the bird I could see in almost every nature reserve in East Anglia, is a scarce winter visitor in my area. It has reduced its number because their habitat, rice paddy has decreased. I heard that this place is one of a few places where we can still see more than a dozen of them in the area.
