Lam Tsuen Spring 2009

Just as a point of interest re. Mike's recent observations of a pair of Little Ringed Plovers at She Shan.

On April 30th, 2006 I found an LRP nest containing four eggs at She Shan - on the broad, slightly elevated grassy area near the village. Unfortunately, when I went back on May 6th the nest scrape was empty and there was no sign of the birds, so I presume the nest had been predated.

This may be the trashed area that Mike is referring to - difficult to tell, as most of the area around She Shan,and indeed the Lam Tsuen Valley as a whole, is being trashed in one way or another - some of it under Govt auspices for flood alleviation work - and you'd think by the extent of the work and the concrete being laid down that Noah ought to be building the ark again....
