2016 17 Nov. to 2 Dec Winter SE China by Zoothera guided by Tang Jun and Steven An
Reported by Nick Bray
Our SE China in Winter tour focussed on some of the rarest and most stunning species on the planet as we visited a variety of habitats from wide, open plains, marshes and huge lakes to forested mountains and coastal marshes and mudflats. This was a thoroughly enjoyable tour with a great group as we visited the famous wetlands of Yangcheng and Poyang Hu during the first half of the tour, which met all of our expectations as we saw 6 species of crane and numerous Oriental Storks. Add to that a few Spoon-billed Sandpipers and the first of our 12 species of buntings seen, plus 8 species of thrush made this a spectacular start. Moving further south to Wuyuan we were lucky to find a pair of Moustached Laughingthrushes in a secluded valley and our main target of Scaly-sided Merganser swimming along a secluded river set amidst beautiful rolling, forested hills. From here we visited Emei Feng, a stunning mountain where 7 Elliot’s Pheasants were the highlight, plus we had some views of Cabot’s Tragopan, and both Koklass & Silver Pheasants. We rounded off our tour at Fuzhou Forest Park and an extra day at Nanhui, close to Shanghai with Spotted Elachura, Asian Stubtail and great looks at a drake Baikal Teal.China has an excellent road network, good hotels and great food making travelling here very easy indeed and I for one cannot wait to return.
