Birding Beijing in The Global Times

In April I took a journalist from The Global Times – Jiang Yuxia – to Ma Chang to experience birdwatching as part of her research into birding in Beijing.

Yuxia getting to grips with birding by watching a Baer's Pochard at Ma Chang in April.

Yuxia has subsequently written and published this article.

It’s a good read with honourable mentions for a few of Beijing’s birders!

This article follows a similar article in The China Daily a few weeks ago and reflects the growing interest in birding among Chinese citizens – a welcome development in a country with serious environmental challenges.

A big thank you to Yuxia for a well-written and positive article about birding!
