My recent trip to China yielded a massive 11 species! Well it was a business trip, and I only managed to get out for pre-dawn sorties around the conference centre on the outskirts of Beijing! It was about -5.C most days with smog, so it was hardly surprising I didn't manage more! The list:
A partially-iced up, rubbish strewn river near the conference centre proved the most productive area, with up to 8x Green Sandpipers, 2x Water Pipits and fly-by Hoopoe (!) being the highlights.
Unfortunately the only other wildlife I saw was on the end of skewers outside food stalls in the centre of Beijing!
