A Japanese Cormorant was seen over Long Ke Sea at Sai Kung today.

Very interesting. I reported 4 cormorants flying around / on the water below our house in Sai Kung a few days ago (Feb 3rd). I guess this sighting would be just the other side of the hills. Maybe they are regular and I just miss them but I hadn't seen them before and they did not stay long. We look out over Tai chau, Lap sap chau, & Yeung chau. I wish I had scoped them now but I was busy working :-(

I suspect Japanese Cormorant may be somewhat regular in winter offshore. But without a boat it's a very hard bird to look for.
