Jeju-do, Eastern coastal road to Hado-Ri

On the occasion of an unrelated conference, I had the luck to have a short birding outing to the Eastern coastal road and Hado-Ri wetland in the late morning and early afternoon of October 7, 2021. Not much of note, but it was nice to see hunting ospreys at the coast and at Hado-Ri, a small group of wintering ducks, which arrived here, some waders and, at the coast, gulls and cormorants.
