Birds in flight at Nam Sang Wai

Well, a pause from all this South American exoticism for this blog be "what it says on the tin".

Hong Kong birds, namely some BIFs from NSW.

A few days ago I went down to the slipway at Nam Sang Wai. The water was higher than ideal, but flat calm and there was a bit of hazy sunshine around.

Chased by a dozen Black-headed Gulls, this Marsh Sandpiper was trying to escape with it's breakfast intact...

  3. I hope that the Marsh Sandpiper managed to hold on to its lunch! A dozen gulls in pursuit would be quite the gauntlet to run.
