Hey Tom.
Good stuff. That's a good number of Mongolian Gulls. Did you see any with wing-tags? Slaty-backed is a good Chinese record and the White Wagtail must be unusual. Looking forward to coming over next week!

Wafangdian Jan. 18, 2012

Terry, Paul found one wing-tagged Mongolian but it was too far away to read. It's the wierdest thing, all I had to do was remind him that you found some here last winter and he had one in a few minutes!

Wafangdian today did not disappoint. I checked off Asian Short-toed Lark with the help of Paul's excellent ability to recognize calls as we flushed some. I've probably seen them before, but without the ability to recognize calls, it's hard. I've got it now, thanks Paul!

List:

Common Pheasant
Japanese Quail - 1
Been Goose - 7
Ruddy Shelduck - 80
Gadwall - 1
Mallard
Spot-billed Duck
Common Merganser
Little Grebe
Oriental Stork - 2
Eurasian Kestrel
Merlin - 1
White-tailed Sea Eagle - 7
Common Crane - 170
Hooded Crane - 1
Little Owl - 1
Hoopoe - 2 (first winter record I can remember)
Great Spotted Woodpecker - 1
Chinese Grey Shrike - 3
Great Tit
Chinese Penduline Tit - 7 (Also an interesting winter record)
Asian Short-toed Lark - 9
Eurasian Skylark - 150
Red-throated Thrush - 1
Naumann's Thrush - 4
Pine Bunting - 130 (one of the biggest surprises for me)
Rustic Bunting
Yellow-throated Bunting
Pallas's Reed Bunting - many
Japanese Reed Bunting - 58 (spent much of the afternoon counting these in one small area where they seemed more dense. We both agreed that in the whole area they would be in triple digits)
Common Reed Bunting - 1

Great list of gulls! Nice to see Slaty-backed on the list. Unusually high numbers of Saunder's Gull as well?

If I remember correctly, we had a Hoopoe in the dead of winter in Jinshitan in 2008 down by the ocean. I don't remember which month, but I do remember being surprised.

I'm also interested in Saunders' Gulls wintering so far north - we've had a good (for recent times) number - 63 the peak count I think - at Mai Po.

How many do you see up there in a typical winter

Cheers
Mike

Dave and Mike,

There are usually Saunder's Gulls around in a typical winter at a few locations. I am the only one looking, except when visitors come to town, so I can't be sure on exact numbers. There are so many areas where they could be that I would also be interested in a full count of the Dalian area. When I see them, there are usually 5-10 in a group. There could be areas with many more.......just not enough eyes in the area.

Paul Holt was in the Jinshi Golf Club today (by himself, big mistake on my part) and photographed a Red-breasted Flycatcher!!! Ridiculous record for the area, not mentioning it being January!

I joined him in the afternoon but we couldn't relocate it. We did see one Black-faced Bunting and he saw a Common Rosefinch earlier. Strange winter indeed. Very few Siberian Accentors and no Long-tailed and Pallas's Rosefinches yet. Also no Varied Tit but we are leaving for a few days in the Dandong and Feng Huang Shan area when Terry Townshend comes next Wed.

Paul and I also recorded 14 flyby Pelagic Cormorants on a 30 minute sea watch this afternoon at the golf club. The 4 Brown-eared Bulbul remain as well. We then drove to the other end of Jinshitan Bay and counted 194 Falcated Ducks, around 60 Common Shelduck, and a few Wigeon.

Paul is off the Zhuanghe tomorrow and sadly I won't be joining him.

Wow, good pics of a good looking bird - doesn't look out of place (ill, underfed etc). Interesting to have so many unusual winter birds on the peninsula. I wish I was managing to get out more to see if we have unusual hanger-oners here, but...

Do you know your previous latest date for a red-breasted?

Gretchen, the Red-breasted Flycatcher is probably the first Liaoning record.

I got a call from Paul again today near Zhuanghe and soon I was in the car making the 1.5 hour drive for 1740 Relict Gulls! No photos as they were very far out. With two kids and a lovely wife, I can't do every day with him but I sure appreciate getting the call. He's at Jinzhou Bay again tomorrow. He also had a Saker Falcon earlier this morning.

Forgot to mention I saw an Azure-winged Magpie at the Jinshitan Golf Club on the way to look for the red-breasted Flycatcher yesterday. Surprisingly a decent Dalian area record.

Exciting times - a top Relict Gull count. RBFly is a rare winter visitor now in Hong Kong but its very interesting to hear of a bird so far north and east.

We need a blizzard to bring some of your quality birds down this way - even the stuff in shanghai would do - still no RF Bluetail so far!

Cheers
Mike

Interesting, Red-throated flycatcher (same, parva, right?) is marked as a common bird here, so I assumed you had them there too.

Seems to me that the Azure-winged are becoming more common here. We have a big flock (gang) of them on campus this winter... very group oriented compared to the other two magpies.

Mike, we're finally getting highs below zero now, so maybe there's enough cold to move things>>>

Heughlin's Gulls Jinshitan January 21, 2012

Took a brief ride with the kids to a fishing village in Jinshitan and found a good group of gulls on the frozen ocean. In the group were three Heughlin's Gulls.

Been out for some drives in Jinshitan yesterday and today. I also went and saw Paul Holt at Jinzhou Bay later this afternoon. He has now seen 3 wing-tagged Mongolian Gulls, two Slaty-backed Gulls today, a few Common Reed Buntings among other things.

I saw a coot in salt water yesterday here in Jinshitan which made me look twice! I guess there's no other options now. I also took my first ever photo of a Merlin. Horrible photo, but a very scarce bird here locally.

Also a shot of my son at Jinzhou Bay today, poor guy, he doesn't stand a chance.

Some top China birds - six potential China ticks for me - and stuck in fog-bound pollution-bound migrant-free valley that hasn't managed even a Bluetail this winter! (grumble grumble grumble)

Cheers

Hm, Hazel Grouse sounds unusual, but perhaps not? I'm quite jealous of the pygmy woodpeckers, I'm wanting to see one very much. I like the varied tits, who remind me of clowns a little for their patchwork coloring. Sounds like great birding, and hope the rest goes well.

Tempting . . . this year anyway, but in the long run I will always prefer a rural part of HK to urban Shanghai!

A short drive and stopped at the only area of running water in the area. Sometimes there's some good stuff around it in the winter -- 2 Green Sandpipers today. Also another photo of Bai qingquan, Terry Townshend, and Paul Holt at Fenghuang Shan north of Dandong.

Nice images of the Green Sand and the Mongolian Gull, Tom! The gull's wing-tip pattern can be seen very well - showing black on the wing-tip to p4 - and the typical 'neck shawl' of Mongolian in winter.

Jinshitan February 2, 2012

A few hours in the car with my son. We drove around a flat scrub area. In the end we had some good sightings and sang every song he knew 4-5 times. He loves being out in the car but it was too cold to get out for long. Saw a Saker Falcon cruise past clearly on its way somewhere which is only my second record for the area. Also had a very nice adult male Merlin very close to the car chasing one of the sparrowhawks out of the area but it wouldn't sit for a photo. I need a Merlin photo desperately for the next edition of my book. Two Rough-legged Buzzards hung around for the entire time. I had one so far this winter and now have seen 3 in the last week. Clearly they have moved into the area now. I'm checking out the reservoir tomorrow morning.

Ruddy Shelduck - 16
Common Shelduck - 28
Mallard - 1
Eurasian Kestrel - 1
Merlin - 1 gorgeous male, beautiful birds!
Saker Falcon - 1
Eurasian Sparrowhawk - 2 adult males
Rough-legged Buzzard - 2
Eurasian Skylark - approx 50

Afternoon visit to the reservoir was completely useless except for 2 Eastern Buzzard and a few Pheasants. The Sea Farming Ponds had a nice adult White-tailed Sea Eagle (first record for that specific area) which was being mobbed by over 30 magpies. After watching for a while, 3 Upland Buzzard and one Eastern Buzzard joined in the pestering. Quite a sight! Eventually the eagle moved off and landed at the other end of the ponds with one buzzard staying with it all the way. Check out how the eagle dwarfs even the biggest of buzzards. Back at the same spot as yesterday, I refound the adult Merlin and today he posed nicely.
