Fourth Year

I first started this blog in January 2009. Can't believe it's already my fourth year here in Blogger. My first post was published on January 6th showing my lens pointing towards the cranes under the morning light at Izumi, Kagoshima Prefecture and a short welcome note. Four years have passed and many things in this blog have changed. Thanks to all the readers who visit this small blog and share with me some of your thoughts. All of your comments are part of the very important reasons that keep me posting. I'm sure that I'll be posting more and more throughout 2012. Lastly, I'd like to share with you a photo I took from my most recent trip to Fukuoka during the New Year vacation. I had a great time seeing many species of birds that I don't normally see here in Beppu or Oita. I even got 1 lifer from this trip. Stay tuned. This post is to be continued.

A difficult one Tony, black legs, thickish neck, looks like a swan but not a lifer? I'll have to wait - off to Spain for sun.

Well done on this new lifer and it is a pleasure to read you ;-) Well done on the Baikal teal too, I love that post a lot!!! Oh and happy new year...

No idea what that is. Whistling Swan? Siberian Crane?

I'm now in my 6th year on my blog (!).

I reckon the initials are BFS? Hmmn. Very interesting and so near. Not a Toki, I think. Something rare? Congrats on your blog's birthday. Hope we can see many more birds over many more years.

I agree with Russell, your "lifer" if the photo is it, looks a bit BFS-ssy to me, too !

I'm guessing European Spoonbill wouldn't be a lifer.
