Headed to Xiamen in late June/Early July, are there any places good for birds at this time of year in the Area? I'm visiting a friend (non-birder sadly) but he has a car so might be able to drop me off at some parks or something. Also any guides in the region?
u can consider visiting Fuzhou for Chinese Crested Tern,or go into the Wuyishan Mountain Range for some pheasants and highland species.
If just in Xiamen,coastal areas are Ok for some waders in southward migration at that time,and the hills in the suburb for woodland birding although it'll be hot and many of the birds have finished breeding.
