"Hung Fa Leng" - northeast New Territories

Overcast skies and light rain brought a bit of relief from the summer sunshine.

Off to the hills for a short stroll, then.


Starling Inlet - not named after a bird, but after a ship that was named after a bird - "HMS Starling"


near Au Ha Tsuen
Built in 1933 ? - a minor miracle this place hasn't already been converted into peach-tiled village houses.


Rose Myrtle
- the fruit should be edible in a couple of months.


Chinese Lily
- with a beetle !


Crested Serpent Eagle - the lighter feathers on the wing coverts mean this is a young bird.
