The Ho Man Tin Playground

Whatever its attractions as a children's playground, the Ma Tau Wai Reservoir Playground in Ho Man Tin is certainly a playground for birders and bird photographers. A small green oasis perched above the urban Kowloon peninsula, it is evidently on the migration route for several species.
In spring the main attraction involves the migrating flycatchers, and the colourful males in particular. A male Blue-and-White Flycatcher was drawing crowds this morning, while a drab female was not getting so much attention. This species passes through Hong Kong regularly on spring passage: after wintering in Southeast Asia, they migrate up the coast to breed in Northeastern China, Siberia, Korea and Japan.
