In Yanqing county lies the the 'birding capital' of urban China – the protected wetlands of Wild Duck Lake (Yeyahu,野鸭湖). You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more perfect oasis of tranquillity and natural splendour anywhere in Beijing. Once you’re past the duck- feeding wharf at the entrance gate, most Chinese visitors, deterred by the long distances involved, stick to pedalling rented four-person quadricycles around the largest of several lakes, leaving the reed-lined pools and marshes of the rest of the park blissfully deserted.
