Tidal Flat & Habitat of Black-faced Spoonbill

The vast tidal flat area of Ganghwado, the breeding place and stopover of migratory birds, estimated to measure approximatly 450 square kilometers.
This tidal flat is the biggest single cultural asset as nationally designated. Ganghwado and several islets including Seokmodo, Gyodongdo, and Boleumdo are naturally given with a large tidal flat and situated in the route of the seasonal birds migration. This blessing tidal flat furnishes important feedings and breeding area for many migratory birds back and forth Siberia, Alaska, Japan, New Zealand and others.

Of the all species most rare birds, black faced spoonbills breed here and so was designated a natural monument. It is presumed that black faced spoonbill prefers to breed in this naturally advantaged tidal flat which is adjacent to the demilitarized zone where the people's access are strictly prohibited, free area of the natural enemies.
