Latest Covid News

Still here - waiting for a break in Covid - as of March 2021, following the initial Wuhan outbreak, the level of infection in China is still very low  - however, entry is denied to non-Chinese nationals unless they have work or family visit visas. Depending on how effective vaccination proves on a global plan, the soonest we can presently hope for an opening in general tourism would be somewhere in early 2022.

With Dujiangyan just an hour and a half’s drive, the area provides some of the best daytrip watching for Chengdu birders. However, most birding attention has been focused on sites like Qingcheng Mountain, while other areas often go ignored. With species like wintering Ibisbill and Chinese Merganser to rivers and reservoir areas around the city also deserve to be top draw birding spots – for anybody making a winter trip to China, probably one of the easiest and most accessible Ibisbill sites in China.
