7 Sept 2009

Long Valley, Hong Kong on 3rd Sept.

Sunny, hot late afternoon, but a few birds around

Lotus Pond from the managed area

Many Black-necked starlings, an adult and four young here

Chinese Pond Heron losing it's breeding plumage

Great Egret, arrived for the winter, or on passage - they are never seen in LV in summer

.... and a "Swintail" Snipe. We used to be confident we could tell Swinhoe's and Pintail apart in the field, but now we're told we shouldn't be so sure, as the sizes overlap.
