Mokpo Namhang Urban Wetland, October 2

Bird News from Andreas Kim

After a rainy night the morning slowly started to clear and occasionally the sun came through. Like two days earlier, most birds were still the same, of note were: the Black-winged Stilt still present, 5 Eastern Spot-billed Duck had arrived, instead of the two Terek Sandpipers there was a Grey-tailed Tattler today, a Common Kingfisher was first heard and a while later also seen and the biggest surprise was a Ruff, a species that was seen on the site before only in September 2008.
