We fancied a Chinese.

We have just got back from 2 weeks in Northern China where we got over a 100 lifers.
Although we had a good time and the Chinese people were lovely, China was not what we expected and we were a bit disappionted that a lot of old China has gone, only to be replaced with western style buildings and cities, with a skyline that could rival Manhattan.

Brown Shrikes can sometimes have a grey head.

We were surpised to learn that the Lores and Feet are Pink in breeding Male Little Egrets.

White-Throated Sparrow at Boscastle

John had an early start at work to-day (4.30am), came home cream-crackered, but decided this bird was too good to miss so we drove to Boscastle for what was a lifer for us. Sue
