If you feel comfortable, pls send a fax reporting the no and spp of dead birds, date, and location to Highways Department and cc it to EPD.

They will do something to stop this happening again.


If it is not too convenient, pls send these information to Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden (Attn: Captain Wong) at 2483 1877 (fax) or captainw@kfbg. or g

These information will be sent to the relevant depts for drawing their attention.

Your kind help will certainly reduce possible bird collision in the future.

I cannot read the Chinese but this looks like a classic case of how NOT to design a noise barrier - clear glass and extensive green area on one side so that disturbed or frightened birds instinctively try to dive in to cover.

This should definately be reported to Government so that remedial measures can be taken - ideally making it opaque or failing this applying conspicous shapes to the glass to make it more visible.

Sorry to note so many fatal cases regarding birds hitting on the noise barrier. I think the design of noise barrier should be changed. A raptor figure with an illuminating material should be adhered on the surface of noise barrier so that birds will not fly too close to it. The designer of HyD should take note in order to prevent from recurrence. However, I always feel that the engineers working in the government are very robust. They are not so considerate. Development is at their first priority while sustainability of culture, building, environment, social lives is put aside. They can destroy Star Pier, Queen Pier and can sacrifice natural animals and plants.
What a cruel government !

Government Press Release on 24/12/06

Green noise barriers to go on trial

Plants can soften the appearance of noise barriers and improve the streetscape, Highways Department Chief Engineer Chow Chun-wah says. Special panels will be put on trial on two road sections in Kwun Tong and Tsuen Wan where noise-barrier retrofitting will begin in 2007.

Noise barriers and enclosures are often installed to protect residents from traffic noise. While they mitigate noise, they also have a visual impact. In this regard, a study was launched early this year to explore the greening and aesthetic design of noise barriers.


To alert our feathered friends, falcon stickers (right) have been put on the transparent noise barrier along Kam Tin Bypass to make the panel visible to birds.

... ...

On other greening measures, such as concrete panels with climbers, the engineering expert said the public prefer transparent panels since concrete ones may block views and light.

Apart from the acoustic, aesthetic and greening aspects, engineers must also take into account the safety of our feathered friends, especially when designing noise barriers in areas with high bird density or in rural areas.

... ...


Barriers made visible

"With the advice of the Agriculture, Fisheries & Conservation Department, we have put falcon stickers on a section of transparent noise barriers along Kam Tin Bypass since June, to make the barriers visible to birds, following reports that bird carcasses were found," Mr Chow said.

Local and overseas experiences have shown that falcon stickers can cut the number of birds who fly blindly into the transparent barriers. The AFCD's initial assessment found the trial on Kam Tin Bypass worked well, with only one dead bird found in the two-month observation period.

In the same period, 20 bird carcasses were found along the section where no falcon stickers were posted.

To confirm the stickers' effectiveness, falcon stickers will be put on another section of transparent noise barrier along Kam Tin Bypass in early 2007.

Mr Chow noted so far there are no dead-bird reports for other roads fitted with transparent noise barriers.

24/12/06 政府新聞稿

兩路段引入綠化隔音牆

路政署的研究發現,以透明物料建造隔音屏障,可減低侷促的感覺,但若情況許可,可考慮加添綠化元素,如採用綠化隔音牆、附以攀爬植物的混凝土隔音屏障、土堤,以及綠化隔音罩頂部。

將軍澳道近翠屏南邨和青荃橋荃灣段引道,將試行引入綠化隔音牆,預計2009 - 10年完成。

為提高雀鳥的警覺,錦田繞道的透明隔音屏障已貼上猛禽的圖案。

錦田繞道的1段透明隔音屏障則已貼上猛禽圖案(右圖),提高雀鳥的警覺。

... 加上區議會和居民的意見大多傾向採用透明的隔音屏障,故較多採用透明的隔音屏障。

... ...


隔音屏障的設計,除了能發揮屏障的功能,以及具美化和綠化的效果,若裝設的地點位處鄉郊,或是雀鳥經常途經或聚集,設計便也要顧及保護生態的元素。

     周進華表示,在收到意見指出,在錦田繞道近高埔村的透明隔音屏障附近發現雀鳥屍體後,便根據漁農自然護理署的建議,6月在1段透明隔音屏障貼上獵鷹圖案,以測試這能否減低雀鳥撞向透明隔音屏障的成效。

猛禽圖案試驗理想

     根據本地和海外的經驗,猛禽圖案能令其他雀鳥更為警覺,並察覺到透明隔音屏障的存在,以減低雀鳥撞向透明隔音屏障的機會。

     漁護署的初步評估認為,試驗的效果理想。在兩個月的試驗觀察期內,貼上獵鷹圖案的屏障下,只錄得1隻死雀,較同一地段沒貼有獵鷹圖案的屏障下錄得的20隻死雀數目明顯為低。

     路政署明年年初在上址另一段透明隔音屏障貼上獵鷹圖案,以便漁護署進一步研究這些圖案的成效。

    周進華指出,除錦田繞道外,暫時未收到報告指其他路段的透明隔音屏障下發現死鳥。

     然而,若有迹象顯示透明隔音屏障對雀鳥構成危險,漁護署和路政署將研究是否需要貼上獵鷹圖案及其可行性。

     路政署已有作業指引,要求工程師在設計階段,考慮預防雀鳥撞向透明隔音屏障的設計。有關作業指引的詳情,可瀏覽這裡

PRACTICE NOTES NO. BSTR/PN/003 - Revision B
Noise Barriers with Transparent Panels
Bridges and Structures Division October 2006


3. Design Considerations

Apart from the noise mitigation requirement for the noise barrier, the designer shall also consider, inter alia, :-
(i) Cost effectiveness
(ii) Safety and fire resistance
(iii) Aesthetics
... ...
(ix) Bird collision
... ...


3.9 Bird collision

There are reported cases where birds collide onto the transparent noise barrier panels causing bird mortality. As the panels are either transparent which appears invisible to birds or reflective that mirrors the facing landscape, birds are unable to recognize them as physical barriers. Having considered the bird collision problem, the Director of Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation (DAFC) recommended that transparent materials should be avoided as far as possible in the design of noise barrier in areas with high bird density or for roads that cut across rural areas.

To address the bird collision problem, designers should consider bird collision measures during the design stage. It has been a standard practice in Hong Kong to provide transparent noise barrier panels with either tinted materials, embedded opaque stripes or superimposed patterns of thin opaque stripes. However, recent experience suggested that application of tinted materials alone may not be adequate in preventing bird collision and further mitigation measures are needed. In this regard, our department and DAFC are investigating several alternative measures to address the problem. Designers may take note of the investigation and seek DAFC’s advice where necessary.

Hi Alan,

Thanks for your postings.

FYI. THey put these stickers on the Deep Bay Link in 2007. As far as we know, it is a policy to mitigate the bird collision problem in the new noise barriers.

However, for the old ones, they react very slow.....fortunately, they have done something.

Cheers,

Captain

元朗十八鄉路「鳥撞」報告
此報告是為紀錄元朗十八鄉路一帶的隔音屏障,懷疑造成雀鳥誤撞隔音屏障致死之報告。

元朗十八鄉路位於元朗市以南,於2006年完工,途徑之處是鄉村、花場或小型工廠。
此報告只涵蓋元朗十八鄉路之西段(由大棠路至元朗體育館路)(即圖中2至5段)及部份元朗體育館路(圖中1段)。

自2006年11月至2007年7月,主要紀錄在1至3段。
2007年7月至今,主要紀錄在4至5段。
紀錄時間主要通常在早上九時前,有時候於下午亦有一些紀錄。


雀鳥方面︰
調查範圍內所紀錄已死之雀鳥品種包括15種共31隻不同的留鳥及候鳥,被發現時皆倒在隔音屏障之前,並面向隔音屏障,有部份雀鳥屍體腐爛至無法辨識。亦有發現無表面傷痕的雀鳥(以柳鶯為主),停留在地面,反應遲鈍,直至幾分鐘後才能飛走。

隔音屏障︰
元朗十八鄉路的隔音屏障以綠色透明屏障為主,主要建設在民居附近,在調查範圍內以一至兩層為主。隔音屏障十分透光且很容易能看到屏障後的景物,屏障背後往往是綠地或樹木,有時候有不少昆蟲在屏障上出沒。在清涼的早上或會有霧氣。

近幾天路政署已經於十八鄉路的隔音屏障貼上「猛禽貼紙」
希望這是個完滿的結局

有沒有留意到隔音屏障的座向與死鳥數目是否有關係?
Author: lalan    Time: 16/09/2009 22:58

同座向的關係不大
但向荒野一邊的比較多
Author: Sze    Time: 17/09/2009 00:58

會不會是因為屏障後的植物及貼紙太疏的原故呢?
那些雀鳥會不會是看見屏障後有植物,
然後就想在貼紙與貼紙間的空隙飛過去植物那兒,
結果就撞上了屏障呢?

Thanks lalan.  Instead of updating us for any incident bird injuries caused by the glass, is there anything that I can do?  
Author: lalan    Time: 25/09/2009 23:53

如果遇到以上情況,
如非必要不要移動或干擾該雀鳥
因為牠只是暫時失去活動能力
只是給時間牠休息便可


之後記得影相及在這論壇留下該地點的位置等等資料

Thanks again, lalan.

I think I haven't made myself clear.  From your report, I think there were still many bird tragedies.  Would anyone advise us what we can/may do for this issue?  Your photo records are already a relevent evidence to prove that the bird stickers are INEFFECITVE or not as effective as expected.

As any experienced bird ringer will tell you, there are certain species which become active very early in the morning, often at the first hint of daylight, which if trapped are frequently among the earliest birds trapped on a given morning.  In Hong Kong notable examples are chats, thrushes and Lanceolated Warbler, and I'm saddened, but not surprised that these are well represented among the birds affected by the noise barriers.  The problem is that these birds move around in such low light levels that black bird stickers are probably effectively invisible at that time and will not resolve the problem.
Author: lalan    Time: 30/09/2009 23:32

thank you paul for answer why the black bird stickers didnt work as we hope
most noise barrier are face on south and west, that may be the reason the birds can't saw it ever the sunrise
as I konw some of the noise barrier were using straight line to protect the birds, do you think it work?

I had got up before sunrise to check how's the light affect to the black bird label,
我在日出前起床,到場看看日出的光線會否影響那些黑鳥圖像,
it seem ok, can see the shadow too.
連影子都看得見。



but i saw a reed warbler on the flood,
according to my record the bird hit the board during 0616 to 0649, today sunrise at 0615
根據紀錄這隻大葦鶯應該是在0616至0649這段時間撞上屏障,今天的日出時間是0615

lucky it still can fly,
幸好牠還可以飛


u can imagine how it hit the board

觀塘繞道麗港公園段最近也加裝了透明隔音屏,
上面貼滿了猛禽剪影。
繞道旁是麗港公園,下面是馬路,
不容易確定有沒有雀鳥中招。

The Kwun Tong Bypass running along Laguna Park is also fitted with noise barriers recently,
with silhouettes of raptors on the transparent panels.
The Bypass is next to a park, and a highway runs underneath.
It is not easy to monitor if birds are killed.

alan! 辛苦你了!
另外,想問下你會是定期去check ,定係隨機去check的呢?
因為如果是定期的話, 可否整理一個類似 waterbird count既 chart ,
Y-軸為雀鳥的隻數, X-為年份及月份?
唔知鳥撞會唔會有季節性的高峰期呢?

Those noise barrier should have a better design.  HKBWS should write to highway department.

Design of noise barriers to change in bid to save birds
SCMP 16-10-2009

Officials plan to modify glass panes on a Yuen Long road

Highways officials plan to modify the glass pane design of noise barriers on a Yuen Long road after at least 50 birds hit the barriers and died over the past three years.

The officials are working with conservation officers to devise a better design to frighten birds away from the barriers. Design and installation could be completed in a few months.

One option is to replace the black hawk silhouette stuck onto the glass panes since late last year with stickers of opaque stripes or colourful circles to minimise the transparent-glass surface.

The birds, mostly smaller species and some rarely sighted, have been found lying dead or semi-conscious at the bottom of the barrier, which was built along Shap Pat Heung Road in 2006 to cope with increasing traffic brought by property development in the area.

They had apparently collided with the three- to six-metre-tall transparent glass barriers, which stretch intermittently along the road for a few hundred metres to shield villages from traffic noise. In some sections, there are trees immediately behind the barriers.

Fifty-three birds from 25 species have fallen prey to the barriers so far, leaving 50 dead and three injured. The last collision happened about a week ago.

Alan Lam Ngo-lun, a dedicated birdwatcher who passes the noise barrier almost every day and has compiled a detailed list of the victims, said he suspected that the transparent glass barriers, which looked invisible to birds, were to blame.

"The actual death toll could be far higher than I have recorded, as some dead birds could have been removed by street cleaners before they were found," Lam said.

Smaller birds, as little as 11cm in length, were found to be particularly prone to hitting the barrier, as they usually flew closer to the ground. But bigger birds, as long as 40cm, were also found dead.

The most vulnerable species were resident birds that lived nearby, such as the Japanese white-eye, a common and tiny songbird species that accounted for one-fifth of the toll. About 10 per cent of the victims were Eurasian tree sparrows.

Rarely sighted migratory bird species including the Siberian blue robin were also on the death list.

Lam said it was difficult to explain why some birds hit the glass and what circumstances were more conducive to collision, because systematic research into the problem was lacking.

He said such collisions had also become more common in urban areas, with more and more buildings being covered with reflective glass panes that might distort birds' view of the world.

According to the National Audubon Society in the United States, there are about one billion bird deaths resulting from collisions with windows and buildings each year in the United States.

Jackie Yip Yin, a nature conservation officer from the Agriculture, Fisheries and Conservation Department, said it had asked the Highways Department to consider remedial measures, after reading Lam's report.

She said most birds could have hit the glass early in the morning or when visibility was reduced.

Highways Department chief engineer Tse Chun-tat said it was still studying the best options to minimise bird collisions, but replacing the transparent barriers with non-transparent ones might not be financially viable or welcomed by residents.

"We also have to consider the visual impact on the residents, as a non-transparent barrier might block their view, " he said. "This is a balance we have to strike."

He said it might take some time to design the new stickers, and the department would monitor their effectiveness before considering whether to extend the new techniques to other noise barriers.
