South Korea IV Geese in the DMZ

In the late afternoon, we went to see Greater White-fronted Geese (Maganマガン) roost in a reservoir. On our way, we saw many of them flying towards the site.
As the number was going up, the noise was just overwhelming.
Even after getting rather dark, they were still coming in from all directions.

When we went back there next early morning to see them flying out, it was just stunning.

You can feel a part of it by seeing the video, especially with the sounds on-
geese leaving their roost

Our guide, Mr Byoungwoo Lee, said it was one of the best mornings even for him.
It was so great. Thank you, Byoungwoo, for taking us there! Luckily, it was not as cold as everyone was expecting. We had been warned prior to the trip that the temperature could go down to -20 or lower in Cheorwon, but actually on those two days, it was very mild and we only had a bit of snow during the day.

If you're interested in birding in South Korea, we strongly recommend Byoungwoo as a guide. Please check out his URL "Birding Korea" here
