This Internet publication is a report from the Bird Banding Centre of China and deals with the banding and recovery of bird species in China during 1998-1999.


Thirteen Common Swifts (Apus apus) were caught and ringed in the park of the Summer Palace in Beijing, and all were later re-trapped. This indicates that these birds breed each year in this location.
