The terns of Sai Kung

The rocky islets and seafood-rich waters of Sai Kung harbour offer attractive habitat for terns. On spring passage, Whiskered Terns are commonly seen, sometimes together with white-winged black terns. In summer they are replaced by Black-naped, Bridled and Roseate Terns, sometimes harrassed by kleptoparasitic Lesser Frigatebirds. Today Black-naped and Roseate Terns were using the channel marker off Sai Kung Pier as a convenient fishing platform. Both species breed on the islets of Mirs Bay to the east of Sai Kung.
