Sharp island, Sai Kung

There were more than 50 bird photographers at the Sai Kung pier today.. Intrigued by what they were after, I was very soon “informed” that they were waiting for the White- bellied Sea Eagle. I remembered when I was a newbie in birding years ago, Sai Kung was the place to go! At dusk, black kites would fish around the pier for thrown away fish scraps by fishermen. There’s also a pair of white-bellied sea eagles residing on the islands near the pier too! Recently, there was a Frigate bird spotted at the pier that caused a stir.

But I  don’t have my gear or bins with me this time! So…what was I doing at Sai Kung pier then? 😛 During summer when there is nothing flapping around in the air, I would visit the ones flapping down under.. Yes, flapping fins! 😛 At the pier, we boarded the diving boat and headed off to Sharp Island.  Despite HK waters has poor visibility, the variety of sea critters can be surprisingly overwhelming on a gd day!

Here’s a short video of what I saw on my latest dive (taken by my GoPro cam).

Nature comes in all forms, really dun have to travel far to discover them!
