Penfold Park was closed because of the Bird Flu. It reopened at the same time as Mai Po.
 
There are c.15 pairs of Great Egrets breeding in the egretry, plus a couple of pairs of Little Egrets and possibly a pair of Cattle Egrets.  
 
Interestingly, when the egretry became established in the 1990s most of the breeding birds were Little Egrets with only 1-2 pairs of Great Egrets.
 
I visited the park yesterday (April 27) afternoon but the only migrant was a lucionensis Brown Shrike.
