Interestingly not in Beidaihe. Just looked through all our vis-mig counts for the Autumn Crane watch stints and we only recorded one small group. I note William's et.al recorded 1000's past LHills through 86-90 so we were either blind or they don't come over the SF's

Jinshitan Reservoir Oct. 28, 2011

I stopped by the reservoir after work to see if there was any chance of getting in. This is a place I covered regularly for a few years but haven't been allowed in for the past year or so. Much of the land there is now a golf course and so even the back entrance has a gate. The guards had no problem with me entering this time for some reason! I thanked them and disappeared immediately into the forest. Buntings were everywhere. It has been a long time since I have seen that many Yellow-throated and Rustic Buntings. The weather was horribly dark but the temperature was quite nice with no wind. Because of this, I recorded more birds than photographed. Highlight was hearing the first Long-tailed Rosefinch of the year, even though they are quite common at this place in the winter. Also there were 11 large birds in the air that I want to say were Upland Buzzards. They were very high and could be Oriental Honey Buzzards but they didn't have the 6 fingers, distinct heads, or tail pattern that is normally seen in OHB. They looked Buzzard-ish and were far too big for Eastern. Is 6 vs. 5 fingers a reliable observation? As always, any thoughts or corrections appreciated. I covered the forest areas only.

Common Pheasant -- over 20
Little Grebe -- saw 3 on the way out
Upland Buzzard? -- 11 see the notes above
Oriental Turtle Dove -- 3
Great Tit
Chinese Hill Warbler -- 2
Dusky Warbler -- 2
Black-browed Reed Warbler -- 1
Yellow-browed Warbler -- 10
Pallas's Leaf Warbler -- 30
Vinous-throated Parrotbill -- 2 groups
Dusky Thrush -- 5
Dusky or Naumann's -- 35
Grey-backed Thrush -- 1
Red-flanked Bluetail -- 1
Daurian Redstart -- 7
Siberian Stonechat -- 2
Olive-back Pipit -- a few fly overs
Brambling -- 2
Oriental Greenfinch -- 20
Long-tailed Rosefinch -- heard 1
Meadow Bunting -- 6
Little Bunting -- 40
Rustic Bunting -- many
Yellow-throated Bunting -- many
Pallas's Reed Bunting -- 4
Japanese Reed Bunting -- 1

They sound like Upland Tom - http://orientalbirdimages.org/search...ID=&pagesize=1
Structurally closer to Rough-legged, longer armed etc

Hi Mark, The Lapwings must use a different route or remain hidden by smog. Strange really. Nothing unusual in the height or direction E to west and typically fairly low. The Dalian stuff they've been having is a typical reflection of HI from what I've read. Should make an interesting report.

Sea-farming Ponds Oct. 29, 2011

Went out with my wife and two kids for a ride in the country this morning. I had some influence as to what roads we took! Next thing you know, we were riding through the sea-farming ponds and happened to stop so the kids could play. Turns out daddy played a bit as well picking up a life bird - Bluethroat. This was one that I should have seen a long time ago but that's how it goes sometimes. Also enjoyed good looks at several Japanese Reed Buntings and a Greater Scaup which was only the second one I've recorded in this area. I love family rides in the country.

As far as the discussion about Northern Lapwing is concerned, they are relatively uncommon here with all records in March and October. I'm usually not in the right place for them as well. I'm sure there are other places in this area where they are more regular.

List from just over an hour:

Common Pheasant
Ruddy Shelduck
Mandarin Duck -- one female. a little late?
Falcated Duck -- on female
Mallard
Spot-billed Duck
Eurasian Teal
Tufted Duck -- 5
Greater Scaup -- 1 female
Little Grebe
Grey Heron
Eurasian Kestrel
Peregrine Falcon
Common Coot -- 19
Oriental Turtle Dove
Great Tit
Dusky Warbler
Vinous-throated Parrotbill
Bluethroat
Red-flanked Bluetail
Daurian Redstart
Siberian Stonechat
Meadow Bunting
Little Bunting
Yellow-throated Bunting
Pallas's Reed Bunting
Ochre-rumped Bunting

Upland Buzzard image is a Greater Spotted Eagle

Hi Dong Bei,

Another cracking post! Your image of a putative Upland Buzzard is actually a Greater Spotted Eagle. Good birding!

Sea-farming Ponds Oct. 30, 2011

A 2 hour visit today with Leighton, a Beijing birder who is working in Dalian now. The weather was far from ideal and the whole place seemed rather quiet. We did see some goodies however in Greater Scaup, Japanese Reed Bunting, and 4 of some kind of Swan. The Swans flew directly over our heads in poor light making it difficult to see what exactly they were. Most likely they were Whooper but comments are welcome if someone can see anything from the horrible under side photo below let me know.

Common Pheasant
Swan sp.
Ruddy Shelduck
Gadwall

No idea which species, but it I'm a bit blown away by the concept of migrating swans flying overhead!

I like the beard on the second Japanese Reed Bunting pic.

Cheers
Mike

Whoops - my error Dong Bei's 'Greater Spotted Eagle' was a buzzard just as he'd said

Whoops - I should have been more careful!

Terry Townshend emailed me a while ago and pointed out, in his typically polite manner, my error and suggested I take another look at the image I suggested to Dong Bei was a Greater Spotted Eagle. I did just that - thanks Terry and clearly I was waaaay off.

Lord only know what I was thinking (clearly not very much) as Dong Bei was right on the money. The bird is clearly a buzzard and bears no resemblance to an eagle let alone a Great Spot! Can't tell you how embarrased I feel yet at the same time I'm glad that Terry picked me up on my error!

Dong Bei's photo was a decent one and, among other things, the bird in question clearly only has five emarginated primaries (aquila eagles have six) [Dong Bei spelt this out in his text - so why on earth I didn't count them for myself I'll just never know], its tail's clearly quite a bit paler than its body and wings and and there's even a hint of a pale primary panel! Plonker!

Can't apologise enough Dong Bei - I really can't imagine what I was thinking!

I did wonder where the missing primary was and if it hadn't had that gap in the fingers on the right wing I'd have argued with you! Actually, there are some similarities that overlap - http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=gre...Fcun8gPH5d3_BA though the secondaries hardly bulge on Toms bird and yes, when enlarged, is clearly a buzzard.

Firethroat, no worries at all and I mean that with everything in me. I very much value your opinion on this site.

While we're on the topic of correcting IDs, I've been having this nagging feeling that the duck in post #368 of this thread isn't Baer's Pochard at all but rather a female Tufted. Any opinions?

Looks good for Lesser Scaup. Head shape is not Greater Scaup at all. Nice comparison with the other ducks! The other option is female Tufted Duck but would not expect so much white at base of bill on female Tufted.

I think it is a Lesser Scaup

Tom,

Thanks for all your info, and for taking time to put up the photos! As always, I love the ones with two species like the magpie and buzzard. I am still waiting to see an accentor - such nice looking birds! I haven't yet seen any Bramblings this year -but I don't usually spot them until the dead of winter... I guess I need to get out in the trees more.

Cheers!

Many thanks Tom for posting this, congratulations to the team and especially to Paul Holt, an immense effort in producing this report.
I'll look forward to settling down with a printed version to fully absorb!

You need to learn the call Gretchen.

Good places to look near you are the coastal scrubby areas. We always found them around the Pigeons Nest Park area, The reservoir rougher edges. Once you learn the call you should hear them passing over but on the ground, they can be very shy. Now is a good time, beautiful birds.

Great stuff. Many thanks for putting the report together and posting it so promptly. Just had a quick look through and it makes very interesting reading. I've already been able to make several species/numbers comparisons with my autumn visits to Happy Island.Will have a good read later.
