Yesterday is International Wetland Day, however seem no one knows it as there was no news report in here.

Black-faced spoonbill is very famous in Hongkong. During late autumn, thousand of Black-faced Spoonbill start their long journey from Korea peninsula and North-east of China to south-east Asia, include Taiwan, Hongkong, and most farthest place of Vietnam.

Deep Bay is the most important living place for them in Hongkong, many bird-watchers will visit Maipo, Namsanwai to obverse them, and also wetland park in Tinshuiwai which operated by FNO. In Taiwan, the famous bird-watching place is Tsengwen Estuary wetlands of Tainan.
