Avoid disturbance to birds around nests 請勿干擾雀鳥營巢

Although I have been living and birding in HK for nearly 23 years now I rarely go to Mai Po these days,especially not "out of season", but would just like to underline that John A's comments are carefully weighed and politely phrased. however, they undoubtledly also have the weight of the HK law behind them ("Act now!" Police). These hobbyist photographers it seems are not only causing massive stress to the poor birds in question, but actually breaking the law, which was never framed to protect the birds from them, but nonetheless serves to do so, since their disturbance is the same that the massively less-educated might have provided, say, 30 years ago.
