Hong Kong - first evening

After a really smooth flight and early arrival, I managed to squeeze in an hour or so of birding at The Peak this evening. Nice to see a few exotic species including Silver-eared Mesia and Black-throated Laughingthrush as well as some of the usual Asian species such as Oriental Magpie Robin and Red-whiskered Bulbul. Other species seen included Japanese White-eye, Light-vented Bulbul, Black-eared Kite, Common Tailorbird, Little Swift and Great Tit. Off to Mai Po tomorrow so hope to have something to report.
