Tropical Hainan Island is the most southerly province of China whilst also being the smallest of China’s provinces. Hainan Island sits south of Guangdong Province and east of Vietnam. Its sandy, palm-fringed beaches are especially popular with visitors particularly from the colder North Eastern parts of China. It was visited by the ornithologists Robert Swinhoe (1860s) and by John Whitehead (1890s), the latter discovering the spectacular White-winged Magpie there. Closer to the holiday resort of Sanya in the south of the island is Jianfengling National Nature Reserve which consists of tropical rainforest. I visited this area in December 2018 which is a superb place to see speciality birds such as Sultan Tit, Eyebrowed Wren Babbler, Spot-necked Babbler and Large Scimitar Babbler plus endemic birds such as Hainan Leaf Warbler and Hainan Partridge.
热带海南岛是中国最南端的省份，同时也是中国面积最小的省份。它坐落于广东省以南，越南以东。棕榈环绕的沙滩广受游客青睐，特别是来自中国严寒的东北地区的游客。鸟类学家Robert Swinhoe和John Whitehead分别于19世纪60年代和90年代曾造访此地。John在这儿发现了壮观的白翅蓝鹊。尖峰岭国家自然保护区靠近海南岛南端的度假胜地三亚，坐拥一大片原始热带雨林。我于2018年12月造访了尖峰岭，这儿是观赏很多特别的鸟儿的绝佳之地。在这儿我见到了冕鹊，纹胸鹪鹛, 斑颈穗鹛, 大钩嘴鹛. 我还有幸见到了只有此地才能观到的鸟，比如海南柳莺和海南鹧鸪.
