It was extremely hard towards the end of the year 2019 for both of us and the reward for ourselves at the end was a holiday (birding, of course!) in South Korea. YAY!
Tofu hotpot & kimchi & veggies
A meal was always accompanied with kimchi & cooked vegetables/seaweed/bracken (most of them were as spicy as kimchi) in small bowls for everyone at the table for sharing.
The birds we saw in Seoul were
Naumann's Thrush (Hachijo-tsugumiハチジョウツグミ)
Common Magpie (Kasasagiカササギ)
Chinese Grosbeak (Koikaruコイカル)
Coal Tit (Higaraヒガラ)
Marsh Tit (Hashibutogaraハシブトガラ)
Varied Tit (Yamagaraヤマガラ)
In the city centre, common magpies and brown-eared bulbuls were the two most abundant bird species. Interestingly, there were no crows (thick-billed or carrion) in the centre at all.
