11 trip reports from China!

Members (and guests of course) may be interested to know that I have converted all of my trip reports from China into PDFs and put them in one place... on my website:

Here's the list:

Western Yunnan;
27th March - 3rd April 2009

"Endemic Islanders"
Jianfengling and Tianya Haijiao, Hainan province;
25th - 27th February 2009

"Frozen Sea"
Beidaihe, Hebei province;
23rd January to 3rd February 2009

"Finding Pheasants" (please read the note below)
Sichuan province and the Tibetan plateau;
8th - 30th May 2007

"On the Border with Burma"
Western Yunnan, including Gaoligong Shan;
6th - 26th April, 2007

"The China-Vietnam Border Region"
Guangxi and Yunnan;
15th - 24th March, 2006

"Finding Fea's Thrush"
Wuling Shan, Hebei province;
14th- 15th June, 2003

"100 Flowers' Mountain"
Baihua Shan, Beijing;
7th June, 2003

"Birding during Chinese New Year"
Beidaihe and area, Hebei province;
9th - 16th February 2002

"In Search of Cranes"
Eastern and south-western China;
Shanghai, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Guizhou and Yunnan;
22nd December 2001 - 7th January 2002

"South of the Clouds"
Xishuangbanna, Yunnan province;
21st - 26th February 2001

You are welcome to download all of them free of charge, EXCEPT the "Finding Pheasants" Sichuan report (which is 54 pages, 20,500 words and contains 42 photos).

If you choose to download this report, then please do so on the basis that you will make a donation to the Sichuan Earthquake appeal, organised by the British Red Cross.

As I am sure you know, 80,000 people lost their lives when the 8.0 magnitude quake struck Sichuan province on 12 May 2008 - the epicentre was in Wenchuan (not far from the area that many birdwatchers have visited).

I could easily have been there, but as luck would have it, I decided to go there in 2007, not 2008.

Exactly one year before, to the minute, I had just checked in to my room at the Wolong Hotel; and was preparing to go out to look for Golden Pheasants (which were very often seen just behind the hotel).

There but for the grace of God...

The reconstruction work continues - rebuilding lives as well as property.

The British Red Cross Sichuan earthquake appeal is working to make life that bit less difficult for the survivors.
