Northeast Coast, February 16

Bird news from Tim Edelsten & Subhojit Chakladar

At Gosong-Gun we had interesting although somewhat distant views of the juvenile Bearded Vulture, which showed itself remarkably aerobatic for such an outsized raptor, switching back and forth and plunging into a near-vertical dive to elude the harrasment of two White-tailed Eagle. Sunning themselves on a nearby peak within the prohibited civilian control zone were some 20 or so Cinereous Vulture.

Also in the vicinity for example were two rosaceae Bullfinch, some Long-tailed Rosefinch, flocks of Grey-capped Greenfinch and Azure-winged Magpie, an Upland Buzzard, 2 Eurasian Kestrel and an Eastern Buzzard.

At Sokcho, the long-staying Bufflehead still, with 70-80 Greater Scaup.
