Bird News from Nial Moores

Following what appears to be a record-breakingly hot summer, the first few signs of autumn migration in East Busan have included a First Calendar-year Black Paradise Flycatcher in the main gully at Igidae on August 22nd; large numbers of Streaked Shearwater moving north on 27th (with 485 counted moving north in only 20 minutes and with the movement continuing for 2-3 hours), when several duck flocks also seen moving south;  several Arctic and Kamchatka Leaf Warblers daily from 28th onward; several groups of shorebird seen moving south during brief looks at the sea (<30minutes/ day) from 30th, including two Far Eastern Curlew on 31st and perhaps 20 Great Knot on September 1st; 2+ Grey-streaked Flycatcher and single Northern BoobookYellow-rumped Flycatcher and Pale-legged Legged/Sakhalin Leaf Warbler in the main Igidae gully on September 1st;  and 100+ Red-necked Phalarope off the Gwangali Big Bridge at lunchtime on the 3rd, either in the tail end of typhoon Lionrock (which entered the East Sea as a major rain-maker or ahead of typhoon Namtheun, now off western Kyushu).
