2002 [December] - Jesper Hornskov and Jan Kiel - Beidaihe AreaReport
...On 2 Dec we visited scrub-covered hillsides at the Great Wall near Shanhaiguan before JK departed on the 13h30 train, enjoying prolonged sessions with several N China birds, incl. Pere David`s Laughingthrush, Vinous-throated Parrotbill, Chinese Hill Warbler, and the exquisite Godlewski`s, Meadow & Yellow-throated Buntings...
2003 [June] - Steve Bale - BaihuashanReport
...Also, if you are planning to spend a day getting there, there are many places along the 109 that would seem to be worth a stop. This main highway follows the Qingshui River for more than 50km. The long valley is flanked by steep mountains and is lined with woods, accessible scrub, attractive marshy areas; a lake or two; and even some patches of reeds. This area may be particularly good during migration. Even though it was late in the season, we saw 4 Black-capped Kingfishers perched on the same line of telegraph wires above the dry upper-reaches of the Qingshui River...
2003 [October] Rob Drummond - Shanghai, Gaoyou, Yangzhou, Yellow Mountain area - Annhui Province, Beijing, Great Wall - BadalangReport

We visited the usual places although we did spend 10 days at Gaoyou which is located on the Grand Canal, c160 km north of Nanjing and is certainly a place off the tourist path and I suspect not a place that has been visited by too many overseas birders. Several of my records from there were of species whose distributions, according to the field guide, stopped at the Yangtze...
2005 [April] - Edward C HallReport
During the course of an OAT tour of China, I took every opportunity to break away for birding. Following are some suggestions as to where others might productively visit. These suggestions reflect, of course, the time of year that I was there and may not be as applicable to other seasons...
Local birders willing to show visiting birders around their area...
...Returning to Beijing we'll head out to the coast to search for migrants such as Great Knots, Red-necked Stints, White's Thrushes and Siberian Blue Robins at Beidaihe, a world-class coastal migration site. Here we'll also stand a good chance of seeing regional specialties such as Baikal Teal and Relict and possibly Saunders's Gulls...
