In the afternoon we headed to Eulsuk-do, a reedy island just west of Busan proper. We spent many hours there hiding from dump trucks (we may have been a bit out-of-bounds), observing Whooper Swans, huge flocks of Mallards, and a few dozen Black-headed Gulls. The bird we were really after, the Common Reed Bunting, made a late but welcome appearance just as the sun was headed down.
On the mammal front, Amur Leopard Cats, Raccoon Dogs, and Water Deer live on Eulsuk, but sadly I only got a fleeting glimpse of a Water Deer at dusk.
