A sizeable percentage of the world's population of Baikal Teal wintering on one of Seosan's huge reclamation lakes. I spent Sunday visiting this enormously important migration stopover point and wintering area, which Birds Korea considers the best birdwatching area on the peninsula. Over 200,000 Baikal Teal regularly winter here, and my very conservative estimate for the day was 30,000. Feeding among them were many other species of waterfowl such as Common Teal, Great Crested Grebes, and Common Pochards. Flying in great skeins overhead and feeding in the adjacent fields were many thousands of
Tundra Bean and Greater White-fronted Geese (below). Witnessing this major migration event was a powerful experience.   View page
