Igidae, Busan September 3

Bird News from Nial Moores (later with Jason Loghry)

With winds at N/NE 5-6, a very strong northward movement of Streaked Shearwater first noted at 10am. Counting was conducted between 1500 and 1800, and sample counts each hour recorded 1,000 north in 13, 17 and 23 minutes respectively – resulting in a rather conservative estimate of 20,000 Streaked Shearwater north during the afternoon. Also logged were a single Parasitic Jaeger and 4 or 5 Pomarine Skua, 30+ Red-necked Phalarope, 450 Common Tern, and one White-winged Tern.
