Surprised to see a Motacilla cinerea in winter.(They are mostly known as summer visitors.)

Bird Watch at Ansim Wetlands, Daegu (대구 안심습지 탐조)

I went to Ansim Wetlands to watch 2 Eurasian Otters being released back into the wild. It was an event by the NIE(국립생태원) to release two otters that had been rescued last year. Seeing a group of waterbirds in the wetlands, I decided to take a quick look.
