BADALING National Forest Park 八达岭国家森林公园

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated my blog! Having spent sometime birding in China, Summer can be rewarding if you know where to head! Despite a stormy afternoon, we spotted Russet Sparrows right at the entrance only after we paid our entrance fee!

The trails in the park are pretty straightforward, with one of them leading up to the Great Wall! A Yellow-Throated Bunting was spotted at the beginning of that trail and so we braved on hoping to see more! As we ascended (panting away) , a group of Songar Tits cheered us with their delightful chirps! Unfortunately, sounds of thunderclaps had forced us to descend, hence we never got to the Great Wall! Phew!

Back on the main road, we headed towards the pavilion for shelter. And it was in this shaded corner we spotted a pair of Green-backed Flycatchers, Yellow-Rumped Flycatcher and a Tolai Hare! It was brilliant to see them on a rainy day, perhaps they enjoy the rain as much as me! 😛
