Lesser Frigatebird (Fregata ariel) at the Mai Po boardwalk
Lesser Frigatebird (Fregata ariel)
From the most recent Hong Kong Bird Report - “Scarce spring visitor with other isolated records and some long-staying individuals; most records are of immatures and occur in the first half of the year.”
The book is spot on, in this case !
This individual has been a regular visitor to the Mai Po tideline in the past few weeks.
Viewed from the Boardwalk hides, these are photos taken on 12th and 15th of March.
