The PRZEVALSKI’S REDSTART (贺兰山红尾鸲) is still at Lingshan and has been successfully ‘twitched’ by a few Chinese birders this week. I have just received the photos below from ZHANG Yong, reproduced here with his kind permission. Wow!
ZHANG Yong also saw more than 300 ASIAN ROSY FINCHES (粉红腹岭雀) at close quarters…
UPDATE: here is a short video of the redstart taken on Sunday 23 February.
And a couple more pictures taken at the weekend. On several occasions it sang!

Wow! That first photo – just awesome (as young people would say). What a beautiful bird.
I agree! Must be the most attractive Phoenicurus species on the planet!
That is an awesome picture. Congratulations to Zhang on great work.
Absolutely stunning shots of this wonderful redstart!
I presume the name is already set in stone; but it should be Przewalski’s Redstart (i.e.with a W not a V). Either way what a wonderful creature!
Beautiful series of photos!
This is fantastic!
It’s a cracker ! Great find.
