|Another road to nowhere|
|Yongsu Reservoir, west coast|
|Nice-looking Jacana habitat - if it wasn't surrounded by Olle Trails|
|Seotal Oreum - great for migrants in spring, especially thrushes and buntings|
|Altreu arifield - relic Kamikaze bunkers, and a great spot for Little Whimbrel and Oriental Pratincoles in spring|
|Southwest coast, looking east past Sanbangsan|
|Typical Japanese Paradise Flycatcher habitat|
I went on a ramble round the west coast last weekend in hopes of finding the fabled breeding grounds of rare species known to breed on Jeju in the past, such as Painted Snipe and Pheasant-tailed Jacana. No luck - it's a pretty big haystack to be rambling around.
I did find some suitable lily ponds, but unfortunately these were much too close to sources of regular disturbance, like fishing spots and the ever-expanding Olle Trails. Looks like I need to gather some more intel...
