Beidaihe, NE China, Oct-Nov 08

Our third consecutive autumn visit to Beidaihe to watch bird migration. We lost the last 5 days to fog/pollution, the top 2 photos show what it can be like but overall the weather was pretty good to us. We had many highlights but the top one for me was seeing over 800 Siberian Cranes migrating south. The lower photo shows Frank'The Legend' Moffatt and Mark waiting for Cranes. Photos and sketches of large Gulls and Common/Kamchatkas will appear in the next posting.
