Laotieshan latest

Paul Holt continues to enjoy his birding at Laotieshan.  Yesterday (Tuesday) he saw two Golden Eagles (in addition to seven Greater Spotted Eagles) plus both Siberian and Alpine Accentors.  A Marsh Grassbird (Japanese Swamp Warbler) was also something of a surprise.

As an aside, check out this beast photographed at Wild Duck Lake on Sunday…  any ideas as to identification?
