A White Wagtail in Shangri-La’s Potatso National Park

When I was in Shangri-La last month, I spent one day touring the Pudacuo National Park (also called Potatso; in Chinese it is 普达措国家公园).  Not enough time by any stretch of my imagination but I enjoyed the time I had.  In the morning I walked along the shoreline of Shudu lake and early on came across this White wagtail (Motacilla alba alboides) hunting for insects.

From this partly submerged perch, he flew down and skimmed the water’s surface.  Each dive appeared to be successful and after a few minutes the bird flew into the trees and disappeared.
