柏架山行記錄 2017 a walk at mt parker, journal

一月中這星期天,天陰微雨,決定起行走進郊外。原因是近年香港人都愛鑽進郊外,好天氣的週末,山中的人多比美購物區,所以有點刻意避開人潮。天氣不佳但未至於差的日子,應該是寧靜郊外行的好時機。 但仍然是不折扣的城市人,選擇還是很城市的路線。 countryside has become the new hot spot for hongkongers in recent years. people rush to country parks and rural areas over weekends and public holidays. it is more so when weather is good. i started avoiding crowd on blue sky days. last sunday, the sky was grey. i told myself it could be...

白鶴 siberian crane

過去星期六幸運地有機會隨資深鳥友到米埔去,行前更獲通報,最近米埔巧逢稀客白鶴。 入米埔經已覺得是珍貴機會,期間遇到兩隻白鶴騰飛,匆忙間拍到遠飛的倩影,已感超額完滿。 一些同行朋友走得快和前的,其實有較近距離的地面觀察,兩隻白鶴其中有幼鳥。 白鶴在香港之所以是稀客,一來這物種是極危,二來牠們的冬季遷徙路線香港不是停留站。 親眼觀察白鶴飛翔,深深感受這水鳥的美和大型。不深究鳥分類的朋友,在香港看到各類鷺鳥,總以為牠們是鶴。實在,鷺和鶴的分野非常大。 last saturday, got the chance to follow few veteran bird lovers to maipo. the migratory birding season has started and yet to enter the busiest time. but one news set birding enthusiasts very excited - people spotted siberian cranes at maipo. why so excited? first thing, siberian crane is critically...

火炭母 chinese knotweed (polygonum chinense)

火炭母是香港很粗生的植物,我卻很珍重。 一來是本土原生植物,二來植物易認且漂亮,三,多年前因一位婆婆認識她。 那是一次在大嶼山的村落之行。走到一條尚有人煙的舊村,在行人徑碰見那婆婆,她站在自己屋前的矮牆,見到我們一班人,便閒聊起來,指著墻上的植物問我們認識嗎?跟著便在葉間摘下什麼放到嘴內,說到:「這是火炭毛(粵音第一音),(果)酸湄湄,全棵都是寶。」 的確,中藥將火炭母全株入藥,有清熱利濕消滯之用。花、果、嫩莖葉均可食用。 當下,細心打量這植物,發現這草本攀懸植物很標緻,小小白花花瓣有質感,而且光線底下呈剔透,那些小果更微妙,包裹在宿存的花被之內,黑中透紫,帶光澤。 爾後,走到比較靜的路邊山邊,都發現這美麗小植物的蹤影。雖然常見,每次皆不禁讚美她。這植物很容易辨認,葉面常有 v 型的白或深色的斑紋,而其莖呈嫩紅色。 this plant is very common in this city. it is a hong kong and chinese native. don’t overlook this perennial climber even though it is everywhere. it has many pretty features: Its stems are glabrous and red-brown. you can easily recognise chinese knotweed amid a luxurious pasture...
