    Thank you Frogfish and Mike That's very kind you. Yes indeed Mike, southern Yunnan is rich in just-in-China species, but the Gaoligongshan and western Yunnan are much richer and a far better experience in many ways. Best regards from a ridiculously-polluted Beijing (the attached screen grab...

    China observations

    Took the public bus from Shanghai to Yancheng last Wednesday. Spent two days in the reserve area, and then caught the train to Nanjing, where I birded Purple Mountain for two days. My trip report and photos are here: http://www.chinesecurrents.com/wild_side.html
