South Korea II

The Seoul Forest covers a large area near the Han and has woodlands, wetlands, ponds, reedbeds and lawns.

Good habitat for wildlife near water

Elegant Bunting (Miyama-hojiroミヤマホオジロ)

Daurian Redstart (Jobitakiジョウビタキ)

Hawfinch (Shimeシメ)

Vinous-throated Parrotbill (Daruma-enagaダルマエナガ)

There was a flock of over 50 of the parrotbill in the thicket but their movement was so quick I failed to get very clear shots!

Brambling (Atoriアトリ) & Tree Sparrow (Suzumeスズメ) - can you spot them?

Oriental Turtle Dove (Kijibatoキジバト)

Secret Gardens in Changdeokgung Palace

The water was completely frozen!

Gyongmyo Shrine

Mung bean Pancakes (bindae-tteok) in the market

It was a challenge to order what we wanted in the market - the lady who took our order and I somehow misunderstood each other and we were horrified when she brought us a huge plate of yukhoe (beef tartare)! We got the pancakes and sushi-rolls (gimbap) in the end. It was part of fun on holiday:) phew!
