[Outing] Kam Tin Outing Report

Kam Tin Outing Report

About 70 people joined the Kam Tin outing on 9th Nov.  Hightlight is a Kestrel perched on a wire allowing prolonged observation.  Strangly, no Rufous Turtle-dove and very low number of Red-billed/White-cheeked Starlings.

Thanks for help from peter, Christine and Sammy, and a lot of familiar faces.

Actually, peak numbers of Turtle Doves at Kam Tin occur in the second half of the winter (when there is often a decent-sized roost near the Buffalo Fields) which might explain why none were seen. Starling numbers have been generally very low this year (especially at KT) but more seem to be around now that the colder weather has arrived.
