New Territories, New Year

Clear and cool, and we enjoyed the view of Ma Tso Lung, here with Shenzhen in the background,

House Swift, one of the first birds of the New Year....

At Mai Po in the evening, Pied Avocets in a frisky mood.

Some of the thousands of Great Cormorants now wintering at Mai Po.

Eurasian Wigeon on Pond 11, Mai Po.

And January 3rd we “Twitched” the Greater Scaup in the river at Shatin.

 Happy New Year !

  1. Rarity is often a question of location isn't it? Greater Scaup is present on Lake Ontario in the winter by the thousand!
