貝澳 - 水牛家園及多樣自然生境 pui o, home of many buffalo and a land of great bio-diversity

跟大嶼山不少地方一樣,貝澳從前是種稻米的。耕田就需要牛。於是農民遠道從元朗引入牛隻。也跟大嶼山其他地方一樣,因為建造水塘,原來惠澤農田的天然水源都受人為干擾劫亂了,農民開始棄耕,加上經濟轉型,最後農業枯廢了。 農地丟廢了,對環境生態本有著危機。因為農地無人疏水,大雨可能引發氾濫,然後周圍就會給比較霸道的植物佔領,形成單調的生態。 pui o used to be a thriving village town on the lantau island. there used to be many paddy rice fields here. and buffalos were bought all the way from yuen long to here for farming. but as time changed, economic pattern switched, city life grew, and one lethal injection to farming here...

市區燕子2017 urban swallows

追蹤市區的燕子好幾年。慶幸這年度習慣今年可以繼續。 燕子爸媽通常在初夏光臨本城,鋪排傳宗接代事宜。 最開心逗趣的景像,當然是看著三四五個黃口屹出巢邊,努力爭取爸媽找回來的食物。 踏入盛夏,依然有燕子的蹤影。雛鳥不少已經長成。舊區的天際多了周圍竄飛的燕子身影。 been following swallows in the city for a few years. they usually come visit early summer, preparing to breed the next generation. one can see more of them in traditional "rural" district like yuen long, tai po, but swallows love city too, though the city they like are city with low-rises....

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....
