鬧市快影:樟樹洞和絲光椋鳥 quick snap downtown: camphor tree hole with a red-billed starling

尖沙咀鬧市幽靜一角,美麗的幾分鐘。 看到一隻絲光椋鳥站在此樟樹的樹洞,於是靜靜走近一點。牠沒有受驚動。我就跟牠一同駐足好幾分鐘。 牠主要抬頭望向上方;我則不停留意牠身體不同部分: 身上白灰卻幽幽有點藍光的羽毛,炯炯美目,奪目的紅唇(其實是喙)。 i had a beautiful few minute-moment with this red-billed starling around a quiet corner in the middle of tsim sha tsui. spotted it standing at the tree hole. so i slowly and quietly walked closer. luckily i didn’t scare it. there i watch it all over for a few minutes, while...

大埔廣福道鷺鳥林 mourn tai po egretry

事情發生於 2017年6月6日,到今天10號,內心依然裂痛和憤怒。 一直有聽聞大埔附近居民對鷺鳥林有微言,對他們的觀點是理解的,鳥糞、羽毛、雀鳥的剩食的確讓地方骯髒難聞。 但他們投訴,而政府部門以粗暴行動附和響應。事情的發展和背後的「理念(且拋下當中有任何人性、理性)」,絕對反映人類的霸權刁蠻。而事情發生之時與事後康文署人員的反應和回應,完全顯示官僚的無賴和惡臭。 開始投入生態自然工作這數年,才知悉生態朋友界高度評價的這個大埔的鷺鳥林。大家每次提起,均帶讚嘆的語調,稱頌這個城市當中的鷺林何其壯觀。自己親訪,才是近年的事。 還記得當初一次到大埔訪歷史古蹟,舊大埔警署尚在進行活化改造工程,當時導師還說可惜因為工程關係,影響到這邊的鷺鳥數目。猜想不到工程完竣,綠匯學苑開幕後自然環境情況好轉之後,人類世界卻為這個雀鳥家園施加滅絕行動。 簽過譴責書,繼續追隨各環保、自然團體的跟進事宜同時,唯一安慰自己的方式是,提醒自己一定把握每個機會感化身邊人尊重自然萬物。唯二是在這裡作出感性的宣洩。 the egretry slaughter happened on june 6. it is now june 10, still cannot let go of the heartbreaking and anger in my chest. i can comprehend residents there less fond of the egretry - birds excretion, feathers and food leftover equals to quite a level of nuisance....

東平洲自然人文雜錄 tung ping chau may 7 2017

酸葉膠藤的花 flowers of sour creeper (urceola rosea/ecdysanthera rosea)

幾年前寫過此木質攀藤,因為在濕地公園多番看到它可愛的果實。 猜不到原來自己日常經過的地區都有她的蹤跡。 酸葉膠藤是香港原生也普遍。 這陣子,在些山頭綠坡,看到一雲粉紅花霧,很大機會就是她。 酸葉膠藤開花熱熱鬧鬧,小小的粉紅花冠成圓錐花序。花期就在此時即初夏。 lately i have been drawn by the pink mist of flowers along road sides and slopes of victoria road. it was a pleasant surprise to find out that i actually knew this plant before, but the imagery is so different that i did not connect. i saw this woody climber...
