Made a brief foray to the area north of Anping, Sihcao. Plenty of waders including 30+ Black-faced Spoonbills (pictured below). When scanning a ditch for bitterns, I was delighted to see the stunning Oriental Magpie-Robin.
was also nice to run into several other birders and photographers. The
local bird watching scene is quite well developed, and there is a
growing awareness among the population at large of environmental issues.
