Long Valley Hallowe'en

There are a few pumpkins at Long Valley, but no witches that I've noticed.

Last Sunday (Oct. 31st) was a day of the finest autumnal Hong Kong weather, it was fine, clear and cool.

We ended our birding day at LV.


Pacific Golden Plover

Yellow Wagtail (taivana)

Olive-backed Pipit

Wood Sandpiper

After the sun had set, a few latestayers - including us - were treated to the sight of a Chestnut Bittern foraging in fairly light cover.... "bird of the day" !

*but I prefer "Cinnamon" for this one, don't you ?
