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)

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)

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

Black Winged Stilts Sleeping
These birds are quite tall - they seem to be napping quite low in the water.
Species: Himantopus himantopus (Black-winged Stilt)

White Throated Kingfisher In Mangroves
This kingfisher was larger than I thought it would be - more like our belted kingfishers rather than the smaller common kingfishers.
Species: Halcyon smyrnensis (White-throated Kingfisher)
