Walked around LFS a bit this morning. Relatively quiet. The Black-winged Cuckoo Shrike was around as was a pair or Rufous-tailed Robins. The Niltavas were not seen. The only true migrant I could find was a Pacific Swift mixed in with the Little Swifts.
The Fujian Niltava and the Black-winged Cuckooshrike were still on Pik Shan Path this morning. Apparently the warm weather did not tempt them to leave. Author: HKBWS Chuan Time: 26/03/2011 22:17

Went to see if the Fujian Niltava was still here but failed. Very quiet and very few migrants were noticed.
Equally quiet in Po Shan Road as well during a short visit.
All see at Pik Shan Path:

7 April 2011 - Po Shan Road
Po Shan Road is not near as exciting in the spring as in the fall but still can have things that surprise me. Today there was a large flock of Black Bulbuls feeding in a tree. When they took flight, I counted 31 birds.
Finally a flycatcher. A nice male Narcissus Flycatcher. This is a new bird and is the 15th flycatcher species for Po Shan Road (others are: Grey-streaked, Asian Brown, Dark-sided, Yellow-rumped, Blue-and-white, Mugimaki's, Grey-headed, Brown-chested Jungle, Verditer, Red-thoated/Red-breasted, Asian Paradise, Japanese Paradise, Black-naped Monarch, Small Niltava)
Thanks, hope more flycatchers will be coming. Author: ajohn Time: 15/04/2011 15:58
What about the Fujian Niltava? Author: brendank Time: 15/04/2011 16:39
I have defined Po Shan Road as the area around the s-curves descending from Po Shan Road, past Realty Gardens Buildings, and down to conduit road plus the first ~500 meters of the small concrete trail that runs east from the top of Po Shan Road. From what I can ascertain, this area lies just north of Lung Fu Shan County Park boundary. I have been keeping a list of birds just seen in this very small area. I saw the or another Small Niltava there in December. I haven't seen Fujian Niltava there yet.
This area is just east on the road from the location of a large mudslide that did much damage in June 1972.
Before I started going to that area, I am unaware of any records from that particular spot. I think most other records from Lung Fu Shan have been from the Environmental Education building, Pik Shan Path, and Hatton Road parts of the park. Author: iherman Time: 18/04/2011 23:39

Did a nocturnal trip to my favorite spot Po Shan Road. Heard one Collared Scops Owl. My favorite tree, the flycatcher tree, seems also good for mammals as well. Nice to see this rather cute and sleepy pair of Masked Palm Civets.
