香港野生松鼠 wild squirrels in hong kong

根據官方資料,香港在二十世紀六十年代,才出現野生松鼠。

其實,大家以為在紐約中央公園或倫敦海德公園才看到像童話角色的小動物,在香港也不難看到;只要是多樹的地方,不論在山邊或公園,一旦比較少人的時候,牠們就會矯健地出沒。

according to official information, squirrels only started appeared in hong kong in the 60s of the 20th century. these fluffy little soft toy-like mammals are actually quite easily spotted in the city, where trees are dense and when people are not around. 

近年因政府山西座有拆毀的可能所以經常去探訪。經炮台里走上中座大閘,一片小坡地一向寧靜,是我觀賞市區野生動物的小聖地:綠鸚鵡、葵花鸚鵡,還有松鼠。

one of my secret squirrel-spotting sights is at the government hill in the central. i believe the security guards at the main wing help. they must have befriended with these fellows and birds around by scattering nuts or biscuits from time to time. there.
