I was really hurting for light - 1/25th of a second really isn't enough to take a photo of a bird, ignoring that it's through an 800mm lens.
Species: Limosa limosa melanuroides (Asian black-tailed godwit)

Cormorant Flying By
You can see all of the cormorants perched in the trees behind. Apparently their guano signifigantly changes the chemistry in the area.

High End Lenses
Because of the cream colour, I first thought this was all canon gear but looking, it's half Nikon. The nearest camera is a D2X (I believe) with a 500mm f/4D. The camera behind (with the camo on the lens) also looks like a D2 series camera, with the same lens. Behind that is two canons (with smaller lenses) and the final camera (lens pointing up) I can't identify. The front two cameras are on Wimberley Heads - while I've seen them on TV before (National Geographic specials and what not) it's the first time I've seen one in the flesh. This is gear.

Black Face Spoonbill
Everybody is excited about this bird because there is only a few thousand of them left in the world and only a few hundred come to Hong Kong. There was a flock of about 30 of them in a larger pond and a few individuals wading.
Species: Platalea minor (Black-faced Spoonbill)
