Nam Chung 南涌 2009 Spring 春

Nam Chung 南涌 2009 Spring 春

The weather on Valentine's Day in 2009 was not so satisfactory indeed.  But our birding results were quite satisfactory.  We visited 2 places in 1 day.  The first place was Ng Tung Chai and the other was Nam Chung.  Please note that the birding record is posted separately in different topic.
2009年情人節的天氣並不理想, 但看到的雀鳥紀錄令人滿意.  這一天我們到了2個地方.  第一個是梧桐寨, 繼後的則是南涌.  請留意這個觀鳥紀錄會跟不同的主題分開發出.
