Igidae, December 13

Bird News from Nial Moores

A walk through Igidae in Busan after the recent cold snap (with a few hours of snow and maxima struggling to only 4 -5C for much of the past week) found 20-30 Goldcrest (well down on the peak of 120 recorded in November) and tens of Eastern Great Tits, no thrushes, but one or two personata Black-faced Bunting, at least one Eurasian Bullfinch (most likely rosacea), two Eastern Buzzard, a single very small and dark Northern Goshawk and the Long-tailed Shrike still. After some light loon passage earlier in the month, the sea remains very quiet – with no loons and no murrelets seen.
