After further research, I believe the snake in a few posts back to be a Dione Rat Snake. A google search and this website would confirm this I believe. http://www.ratsnakes.com/Edione.html

Quiet, but you definitely saw a number of species. I was trying to decide on your photo of the Curlew if I thought it was a whimbrel or curlew, thought there might be some supercilium, but the bird seemed really large too. By the way, is that bird showing its tongue or are the top and bottom parts of the beak different lengths?

Excellent hour and a bit and plenty of grounded migrants. Yellow-browed Warblers everywhere. The darker picture of a Yellow-browed below lacks the dark border to the larger wing bar. Does this point to something else or is this just a poorly marked bird?

Very nice Rufous-bellied woodpecker. I had to check back to see if you had reported any earlier, and saw you had one in May. I definitely haven't caught up with one yet....

That's a massive raptor festival. The count of OHB migrating through the bay is amazing.

Laoteishan Sept. 29, 2012

Spent half the day (5:30-12:30) at an exceptionally slow Laotieshan. We had a north wind around 50 km/h the entire time we were there and this definitely kept the birds down and, for the most part, impossible to see in trees and bushes. We were hoping for much much more on Sept. 29 but the weather was a factor to say the least! Paul Holt, Terry Townshend, and Per Alstrom had spent time there the previous week and had recorded things like Nutcracker, Hair-crested Drongo, White-throated Rock Thrush, Siberian Thrush, etc. so the bar was a little higher than usual heading in. We only recorded 40 species for the day, probably my record low for any time being there including the dead of winter.


Because Laotieshan was so slow, we made our way back to Jinshitan and did a few more hours in and around the sea-farming ponds there. Two lists below.

Laotieshan:

Japanese Quail - 1
Goose Sp. - 6 (pic attached for anyone to have a go at identifying. Long necked....
Streaked Shearwater - 1 I only looked at the sea for a short time and saw one fly by almost immediately so there was undoubtably many more.
Eurasian Kestrel - 3
Amur Falcon - 5
Northern Hobby - 2
Osprey - 1
Oriental Honey Buzzard - 10 We did see 3 head out over the sea. They were almost gliding sideways trying to move south in a strong north wind.
Black-eared Kite - 3 (and 2 more from my deck today)
Harrier Sp - 1 seen before the sun came up and almost impossible to get any detail on.
Japanese Sparrowhawk - 12 very acrobatic birds in 50 km/h wind! Difficult to distinguish if we saw the same ones over and over but there were at least 12 individuals.
Eurasian Sparrowhawk - 8
Northern Goshawk - 2
Eastern Buzzard - 3
Black-tailed Gull - 100
Oriental Turtle Dove - 10
Spotted Dove - 1
Ashy Minivet - 240 including one in the talons of the Hobby picture below.
Great Tit - 4
Barn Swallow - 60
Red-rumped Swallow
Asian house Martin - 11 in one group
Asian Stubtail - 1
Lanceolated Warbler - 1
Thick-billed Warbler - 1
Dusky Warbler - 4
Radde's Warbler - 2
Yellow-browed Warbler - 12
Vinous-throated Parrotbill - 1 large group
White-eyes - 80 (only two identified as Chestnut-flanked)
White-cheeked Starling - 12
Red-flanked Bluetail - 2
Siberian Stonechat - 6
White Wagtail - 20
Olive-backed Pipit - 80
Red-throated Pipit - 2
Oriental Greenfinch - 7
Chestnut Bunting - 1
Black-faced Bunting - 1

Jinshitan Sea-farming Ponds list later in the day: Again, seeing small birds in the trees and bushes was all but impossible with the heavy wind.

Falcated Duck - 2 juv.
Mallard - 150
Spot-billed Duck - 40
Tufted Duck - 1
Little Grebe - 5
Yellow Bittern - 1
Striated Heron - 1
Grey Heron - 4
Great Egret - 10
Intermediate Egret - 1
Chinese Egret - 2
Little Egret - 3
Eurasian Kestrel - 2
Amur Falcon - 1
Oriental Honey Buzzard - 4
Japanese Sparrowhawk - 1 very good record for Jinshitan
Eurasian Sparrowhawk - 1
Northern Goshawk - 1
Common Moorhen - 1
Common Coot - 7
Common Greenshank - 2
Green Sandpiper - 2
Oriental Turtle Dove - 2
Common Kingfisher - 2
Chinese Hill Warbler - 1
White Wagtail - 3
