Big birds flying south

A shinkensen train, 3 mile walk and a taxi .. I got there. Izumi crane observatory. In the region of Kyushu. 7,000 cranking cranes have arrived from Russia, more on the way.  What a sight and noise.  So many types of cranes…  These ones are mainly Hooded And White-napped Cranes. Hokkaido’s are black & white. I was met by the Tourism Manager and shown around. This reserve is now protected, three in Japan. A lovely afternoon sketching & recording……Then another local bus 30 mins for £1 and the Orange Railway all the way down the coast to Sendai. That would be through Satsuma. Epic journeying. Trains & buses never a second late.
