Hong Kong Sep 2006

3 days in Hong Kong. Found the HK Birdwatching Society website and managed to carve out an hour to visit City Park, which was the only recommended site within reach. After wasting a lot of time tramping round empty (it's 630am!) shopping malls i finally found the park.Black Kites overhead, several Sulphur Crested Cockatoos (not native, but have graduated to the main section of Clive & Karen's definitive text) in the trees, Crested Bulbul and on the ground Spotted Doves and Black Faced Laughing Thrushes. A few other species in evidence but I couldnt get a good enough view.
