Changeable Lizard Male Breeding
This Lizard was really out in the open and larger than others I have seen of this species. He paused on the step and then was gone.
Species: Calotes versicolor (changeable lizard, Oriental garden lizard)

Russet Percher
This was probably the easiest species to photograph - long perching times and quite striking colours compared to the background.
Species: Neurothemis fulvia (Fulvous Forest Skimmer, Russet Percher)

Red Helen
I was happy to see a new to me kind of large butterfly. The day was a bit cooler than last year so not as many insects were out.
Species: Papilio helenus (Red Helen)

Two Skinks In Woodpile Hg
We saw a total of three skinks in this area. The suspicion is that it is mating time.
Species: Eumeces chinensis chinensis (Chinese Skink)

Paris Peacock Feeding
This individual has had a rough life - he is missing parts of his wing. The green dots covering the wings really stand out in direct sunlight.
Species: Papilio paris (Paris peacock)

White Dragontail
These were quite common in the day - we saw them in both locations, but they never stopped moving! Only late in the afternoon did they stop to feed, but they often kept beating their wings even when they standing on their legs.
Species: Lamproptera curius (White Dragontail)

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.
Species: Phalacrocorax carbo (Great Cormorant)

More Birds
Those tall white birds (black legs, yellow bill) are great egrets. The smaller black and white birds are White-breasted waterhen.
Species: Ardea alba (Great Egret)

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)

Marsh Sandpiper
This bird happened to wander close enough that I got a nice photo of it.
Species: Tringa stagnatilis (Marsh Sandpiper)

Flock Of Black Tailed Godwit
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)

Great Egret In Breeding Colours
That bit of their face mask goes blue and their beak goes black in breeding season.
Species: Ardea alba (Great Egret)

Eurasian Curlew And Marsh Sandpiper
The Eurasian Curlew is the much larger bird on the left with the crazy long beak. The two Marsh Sandpiper appear to be sleeping.
Species: Numenius arquata (Eurasian Curlew), Tringa stagnatilis (Marsh Sandpiper)

Dusky Warbler In Intertidal
I was sitting in the blind watching the sea birds when this little guy came out of the bushes and played on the beach. He wasn't there very long and then back in the bushes. I already had my 400 out on a tripod so I was able to capture a photo.
Species: Phylloscopus fuscatus (Dusky warbler)

Osprey Eating Fish
I almost didn't see this bird - you would need a crazy large lens to actually get a decent photo. Given that Osprey's exist world wide, you would think I would eventually get a good photo of one of these.
Species: Pandion haliaetus (Osprey)

Pied Avocet On One Leg
These birds were the main event - there we hundreds of them in deep bay.
Species: Recurvirostra avosetta (Pied Avocet)
