I am attending the COP 10 – United Nations Desertification Conference in Changwon, Gyeongnam Province. This is in the South of Korea near the coastal town of Busan.

It seems that I will have a part of the Sunday off for own personal travel. Does anybody know whether there is a great spot for birding in the vicinity and whether it is worth it to take the camera along?

I have not seen anything through the internet

Thanks
Michael

I am not sure how far it is from where you will be but I do know that Junam Reservoir is quite good. It is a migration stop over point. In fact they have a bird festival there every year so there definitely is some birding culture in the area.

I can say that you are looking at about 30 miles from Busan to Masan and then another half an hour to Junam wetland center. I am not sure on traffic but it certainly seem reachable in an afternoon and they have an established eco center there. It may well be worth a visit.

Hi Doug, thanks for the great information. I am sure that I should be able to visit the wetland in an afternoon (and is already studying the conference programme to see if there is 2 afternoons for own use)

Thank you as well for the comments on the ID post

Regards
Michael
