I was tipped by Guy Miller to shoot the Little Egrets, Black kites during sun set. I did as he advised this afternoon. Then I saw a white thing floating in water which I took it as rubbish in the first glance. However, the rubbish turned out to be this rare beauty.

As my understanding, there are no more than several records in Hong Kong.It seem to me that is a non breeding plumage. Author: Dawnleaf Time: 18/03/2016 06:58
Yes,it is non-breeding plumage. Thanks!

Great find - that created quite a bit of excitement on Lamma this morning. Last seen heading round the point towards the power station, but with luck it may make its way back to the harbour. Author: ((華仔)) Time: 18/03/2016 14:50

There are four previous records, 2002, 2005, 2008 and 2012, all in spring between 13 February and 28 April.
Brendan had the last one, on 28 April 2012. Author: Dawnleaf Time: 19/03/2016 20:00
