Mai Po Nature Reserve "closed" for 21 days...

A dead Barn Swallow with H5N1 was found on 26th March near Castle Peak road, and reported to AFCD.

The positive 'flu test gave the Government a chance to leap into action.... so they've closed Mai Po Nature Reserve for 21 days from the evening of March 31st. This despite the fact that no-one in the world is known to have caught avian 'flu from a wild bird !

Here are some Black-tailed Godwit shot taken at the boardwalk hide on 30th March.
