Last September I spent a day filming at Yeyahu Nature Reserve with a TV crew from Phoenix TV, a Hong Kong-based TV channel with over 300 million viewers in China. The result of the day was a 5-minute programme about birdwatching in Beijing that was broadcast at 7.55pm on 1 and 2 January. You can see the programme by clicking this link.
Can you identify the species of raptor towards the end?
It was great fun to do and I want to send a big thank you to Phoenix TV for giving me the opportunity to promote birdwatching in China. And Swarovski, that free advertising must be worth a new pair of binoculars and a ‘scope…?? 😉

Okay I’ll put my neck out and say Marsh Harrier – great programme! Good to get the word out!
Good try, Chris. But no cigar.. 🙂
That’s a Black(-eared) Kite I reckon. Can I have a free pair of bins and a scope as well?!
Spot on Dave, as usual! If Swarovski give me a new pair of bins and a scope, you can have my old ones.. deal? 🙂
