Parks in some cases can be teaming with birds, either as a result of an absence of appropriate various other environment in cities, or since the have truly great environment, specifically for passerines. It is various, alas, with a variety of “eco-” parks integrated in Korea: great environments, frequently in marshes or stretches of rivers, are changed right into locations with huge concreted locations, all-natural bushlands and also riparian woodlands are replaced by solitary trees bordered by concrete, riverscapes end up being unnaturally modified to make sure that no actual sight of the river is feasible. Among the most awful instances I understand is the damage of the wonderful waterfront of North Hangang near Chuncheon, which we earlier talked about as component of the river and also Scaly-Sided Merganser study early this year ( http://www.birdskoreablog.org/?p=25610).

A brief study on September 19, 2022, verified the monitorings of early this year: the entire park location was entirely vacant of individuals, birds or any type of various other life. Simply beyond that, the waterfront is still gorgeous. Emphasize was a stunning set of Long-billed plovers. Unfortunate to state, however with any luck higher financial worries will certainly make this type of “enhancements” as well pricey in the future. Far better, there ought to be higher understanding of the requirements of environment conservation and also reconstruction, rather than environment damage which neither offers people, economic climate, or vegetation and also animals.
