    Raptor, Poyang Lake, Jiangxi Province, PR China, 09.12.17

    My initial thoughts were this was probably a Crested Goshawk but when I zoomed in on it I started having doubts. Perhaps it could be a juvenile but that's not a plumage I really know. It was taken at a distance and this has been heavily cropped but there is visible detail so would welcome any...

    Nanjing, Jiangsu, China

    Not really sure. It's probably resident and even described by Brazil as 'endemic' to the adjacent province eastwards, Zhejiang. New to area but likely to be here for about 18 months so one to keep look out for. Thanks for heads up.

    Slavonian Grebe, Yancheng, Jiangsu, China

    Thanks for this, much appreciated. I got the family right (!) which is more than I can say for the Smew and Hooded Merganser which were also present but which also had me thinking they were grebes on account of the similarities of the merganser to the little grebe ... ok at a distance!

    Slavonian Grebe, Yancheng, Jiangsu, China

    Would I be correct in calling this a Slavonian Grebe - seems to have flatter head structure and a clear loreal stripe which helps distinguish it from the other contender, Black-necked Grebe. Many thanks.
