Sichuan - The End....

Leaving at 5am from our hotel we drive a short distance to a lovely patch of forest from where the unbelievable happens, and a huge Pere David’s Owl flies over us and lands on the top of a nearby conifer. We watch this beauty for some 20 minutes as it flies all around us and it even at one point passes low over our heads, circling us before alighting nearby – stunning views indeed. Needless to say we were all elated at this sighting and what a way to wrap up the tour. The rest of the forest was pretty quiet and we could only find some commoner species, so return to our hotel for a quick shower and to pack before setting off on the long drive to Chengdu and the end of a fabulous tour.
