hi
本人行山已有五年
雖然每年都唔超過十次
但亦發現香港境內有不少野生動物
我分別在中文大學及默徑(唔識打)既第九段大欖涌水塘
見過箭豬,響中大果次仲係半夜三點鍾做完功課番宿舍見到一孖箭豬拍住拖咁響個山上面碌落馬路,跌左好多箭落黎,我仲執左幾條番宿舍玩~~

響四年之前,我響馬鞍山近石礦場附近既一堆亂石當中,見到一隻有角既四腿動物,大過兩隻狗仔加埋,怕係果d乜黃驚(唔該打)黎啦,響距離我只有五尺既地方跑過。

所以墨魚曰:"香港真係乜都有~~"

人云“上得山多終遇虎”,虎就未遇過,其他動物
倒還碰見不少。

記得前年九月晚上乘車行經林錦公路近白牛石時,
見到一隻動物以高速越過馬路,印象中只記得有一
條粗大的黑白相間的尾巴。相信是什么九間狸吧。

另外,前年五月在婆髻頂落白芒坑時,聽到一些象
狗吠又不是的動物叫聲,接近時看見一頭像家貓大
小的動物以高速離開,又是什么狸吧。

I have seen a huge python (about six fee) fighting a mouse at the reservior hill near Lok Wah Estate, Kwun Tong.

The python was invading the mice nest, but the mice fight back, then the python leaves like a train down the slope (Like a 5 feet lamp pole !)

Now, they are building a new school at the bottom
of the hill. I wish the student good luck !

各位可曾在行山或郊遊時見過野生動物, 例如野豬? 本人就曾在約五年前的一個早上, 於新界東北榕樹凹通往鎖羅盆的山徑遇上了一頭比成年的野牛略小的黑色大野豬, 幸好牠見到我們便馬上走入樹林. 又有一次,本人與友人在約六至七年前的一個晚上約十時從西貢飛的入吹風坳, 車行至萬宜水庫西灣路時, 在沒有街燈的環境下, 的士慢慢行駛, 拐個彎後, 眼前出現一隻長約一呎的豹貓, 正正被的士的車頭燈照著, 繼而馬上逃去.

各位若有遇見野生動物的經歷, 望能上載分享.

前幾年一次行石坳山時,看到一隻約有30cm左右的穿山甲呢!以前只曾在遊客中心見過標本,以為這種動物在本港已絕蹟,原來還有呢!

聽說在甲龍林徑一帶亦有箭豬出沒, 有人見過嗎?

I saw an owl in the way between Fan Lau and Tai Oi.

20CM long,very cute

我數年前在西貢大浪村通往咸田灣途中的山邊金塔附近見過有箭豬出沒,仲砟@家大細有4隻咁多。

I also saw a family of wild pig in Clear Water Bay Road (a small carpark near 兩塊田村).Pig father, mother and two sons, I parked my car there and chatted with other villagers), the pigs even crossing the road!

I saw some wild pig in 水浪窩a year ago.

   By Daniel on Tuesday, January 25, 2000 - 7:35 pm:  Edit

Actually you are very likely to see a wild pig from a distance from time to time if you are hiking in the remote part of the Northeast N.T. (near the Wong Chuk Kok coast/NE shore of Plover Cove reservoir) but of course you have to leave the main trail and venture into the bushy trail to see them. Don't do that unless you know the area well, or you are with some experienced people.

A more common animals to see in the countryside are the snakes. Anyone has the experience of encounter with a snake ?

   By SNAKE on Tuesday, January 25, 2000 - 10:19 pm:  Edit

I saw snakes two times, one was in 元五墳, just under my foot. another was in 大潭水塘, just 4 feet beside me. They moved so fast that I cannot distinguish their type.

   By Hikecat on Friday, May 05, 2000 - 3:48 pm:  Edit

We saw a 5-feet long snake (yellowish-brown) last weekend in the catchwater near Cheng Sha on Lantau. It escaped into the grass when it noticed us (less than 2-meter away). Although we are checking carefully on the grass for mushrooms (blooming after the rain), we did not notice it until it's escaping. Be careful next time when you are out there, don't step on them!

以前係墇上一晚之內見過青竹蛇同飯鏟頭,大大條﹗
我係一年前帶小朋友去赤徑露營。半夜同眾導師開會時,我的突然背後傳來怪聲,原來是一頭野豬,幾大隻,仲越走越近。之後我0地怕佢有所行動,於是用電筒扮鬼又大叫大跳嚇番佢轉頭。最後竟然真係嚇鬼走佢,都幾好笑。前幾個月,我夜晚又行經赤徑。今次輪到我阿Sir差0的比野豬撞到,嚇到佢成個人傻0左﹗
我老豆做漁護處,佢話而家仲有0的人非法獵殺野生動物0黎食。我都係大欖一帶見過人打箭豬…希望大家可以愛護大自然,愛惜我0地越來越少0既鄰居。

西貢發現燕鷗天堂

【 明 報 專 訊 】 原 來 香 港 夏 季 也 會 出 現 這 蔚 為 奇 觀 的 景 象 — — 五 百 多 隻 燕 鷗 ( Tern ) 每 年 從 南 方 遷 移 到 西 貢 一 個 荒 島 上 「 生 兒 育 女 」 。

   By ALan on Tuesday, August 14, 2001 - 12:36 am:  Edit

在東北的白沙洲 (豬頭洲)也見到有不少燕鷗出現.

   By 方向明 on Tuesday, August 14, 2001 - 1:00 am:  Edit

千萬不要接觸鳥蛋及雛鳥,否則當牠們有了「人氣」的話,牠們的父母便不要牠們,由得牠們餓死或成為其他生物的食物!

蚺蛇尖對開大鵬灣上的孤島"獨牛洲", 因為風浪大難以登陸,極少人到,島上滿佈鳥巢.

   By drpanda on Tuesday, August 14, 2001 - 2:11 pm:  Edit

其實獨牛洲有燕鷗築巢的消息,知情者一般不願公開,以免太多人去騷擾它們。這次觀鳥會把燕鷗天堂的地點公開,想他們一定深思熟慮,考慮到可能有人有意偷獵或因無知破壞,學那個會長話齋,與其收收埋埋,不如教育市民來得積極。

香港話晒都是國際都會,市民的環保意識應該都要有番咁上下,不過沒公德心的人,大家行山都見得多,希望不要有人因為知道了鳥島的地點,去偷鳥蛋或偷獵,咁真係醜死人。

   By 方向明 on Tuesday, August 14, 2001 - 10:46 pm:  Edit

我十分幸運!我跟隊去四次獨牛洲,其中三次成功登上,其他附近的"兩牛"(弓洲及黃茅洲)也登遊過了!其中以獨牛洲最多海鳥蛋,可能他比較偏遠及比較難以登上之故!

現在只能要燕鷗們自求多褔

也希望各一日遊operator千萬不要將觀光船開得太近

   By 基哥 on Wednesday, August 15, 2001 - 2:29 pm:  Edit

提起野生動物,我最難忘的一次是在嶼南界碑一個山角,向海一眺,竟發現數條中華白海豚在暢泳。背部呈粉紅色,很有趣。幸好該處並沒太多船隻經過,否則便不能大開眼界!不知其他行友有否在行山時見到珍禽異獸?
P.S 記住愛惜大自然呀!

   By 藍色的方向明 on Wednesday, August 15, 2001 - 9:44 pm:  Edit

很記得九五年五月十四日,那時隨駿騏,華嶽聯隊,在屯門嘉道理灣乘專船往小鴉洲(當日很幸運認識到「遠足科」,亦結識到很多名人,包括獵影遊的郭志標先生!),當船隻經過大澳及二澳對開時,有數隻海豚隨我船同行,而且距離不遠,更不時躍出水面,霎時精彩無比.不過之後本人再難睹此景,可惜!

Seven to eight years ago, I saw in broad daylight boars at the Shatin Country Trail, near the residence of the Morocco Consul General in Hong Kong. Besides, I hear that villagers in Lai Chi Woh now still place traps in the woods to catch boars for their meat which is either sold or consumed by themselves.

曹操話:呦呦鹿鳴

   By 白鹿 on Sunday, November 24, 2002 - 10:32 pm:  Edit

「呦呦鹿鳴」原出<詩經.小雅.鹿嗚>,曹操<短歌行>裡的「呦呦鹿鳴」四句,全是引自<詩經>.

言歸正傳,以呦呦形容鹿鳴,不作他想.鶯的叫聲清脆,通常用以形容女子美好的歌聲,如「鶯聲鳥語」這成語.
如用「瀝瀝鶯聲」,不知會否嫌其普通?

   By Dan on Monday, November 25, 2002 - 10:49 am:  Edit

鶯聲嘒嘒

采菽-小雅 《詩經》

采菽采菽,筐之筥之。君子來朝,何錫予之?
雖無予之,路車乘馬;又何予之?玄袞及黼。
觱沸檻泉,言采其芹。君子來朝,言觀其旂。
其旂淠淠,鶯聲嘒嘒。載驂載駟,君子所屆。
赤芾在股,邪幅在下。彼交匪紓,天子所予。
樂只君子,天子命之;樂只君子,福祿申之。
維柞之枝,其葉蓬蓬。樂只君子,殿天子之邦。
樂只君子,萬福攸同。平平左右,亦是率從。
汎汎楊舟,紼纚維之。樂只君子,天子葵之;
樂只君子,福祿膍之。優哉游哉,亦是戾矣。

係上年12月28日
於廈門灣發現野豬腳印
來回橫越沙灘
估計隻野豬都有成隻牛咁上下大
因為d腳印都幾大距離

   By 野豬林 on Friday, February 07, 2003 - 12:48 am:  Edit

野豬點會有牛咁大呢, 連牛仔咁大都冇可能啦, 而且仲係廈門灣, 有都老早比人發現啦.

其實唔只廈門灣有, 火石洲都有, 草叢中就可以見到糞便.

隻豬跑緊d腳印就闊d, 冇什麼特別.

見到各位講得咁高興,等我都講o下先,年初五(5/2)去o左荔枝莊露營,晚上見到樹林"燈光"閃閃,有三四對眼睛在閃動有大有小,之後重四圍走,才發現是果子狸同不知名o既鼠類(有呎半長),連續兩晚如是,走近只有十餘呎,十分清楚.還有八九年前,係嶼南界碑山路上,離岸邊二十多呎,見到一條50多米o既"粉紅"帶,初時重唔知係乜(當年冇乜人睇白海豚),為數超過40條十分壯觀.

上幾星期在深井坑內聽到類似虎吼的聲音向我們發出,但心不信現今本港有老虎出現,我只聽到其聲音從樹林內向我們發出而不見其影,不知是什麼動物,只好急急腳前進,但我認為應該是野豬或其他大型動物,但其吼聲真的很可怕!

Dear Everybody,

Here you go with a Newletter of Derpartment of Ecology and Biodiversity, HKU, called Procupine. Within this newsletter, there is a section "Wlidlife Corner", you can get all sort of messages and detail reports on HK wildlifes, sometimes have wonderful photos attached. You can check it out on the department's website. Go there and enjoy it !

我也常到大欖深井一帶,湛兄所講的動物吼聲我亦常聽到(如果你傍晚七、八時去就機會更高),它也不是那樣可怕,(聽慣了也沒甚麼),在這一地區我遇過赤麂數次,野豬則暫時無緣見過,反而我有點相信是赤麂(muntiacus 又叫barking deer)的叫聲,我有些錄音,有興趣的話我可send file分享,(有認識者可幫忙辨別)

Hi, M&S. Having listened to your file, I am 100% certain that it is a barking deer. I heard similar cries at night or in the day time before here in Hong Kong (Don't ask me where. The deers do need protection.)

At close quarters and if you've never heard them before, the cries are a bit frightening. I was startled the first time I heard it, as I was hiking alone at night at a very remote part of the NT.

   By m&s (192.20.246.168) on Saturday, October 08, 2005 - 1:22 am:  Edit

Hi 老人家, thank you for affriming that 's a barking deer. It does not sound so nice as described in the Chinese poetry - not the same deer probably.
In fact I have heard the cries before in other area where, similarly, I had sighting of the animal too. With experience, I become familiar and more comfortable with their voice, not distrubing each other, I can camp and sleep well alone.

It's mixed feeling that i do hope to protect aninmals by not disclosing location of their habitat, whilst am also afraid that their existence being neglected and possible development rises and damage their sanctuary

   By 老人家 (219.77.73.73) on Saturday, October 08, 2005 - 8:20 am:  Edit

You must have camped and slept very well in Dream Cuckoo Land.

   By m&s (192.20.246.168) on Monday, October 10, 2005 - 9:11 pm:  Edit

Yeah, I have had good dreams on grassy cow-shit land and dusty barren hill top too...

   By 老人家 (219.79.80.127) on Monday, October 10, 2005 - 10:05 pm:  Edit

Of course I was joking about this Dream Cuckoo Land thing. It was quite a feat. I mean you could "camp and sleep well alone". I wish I could do that, again.

Other than barking deers, I once had a close encounter with a few porcupines and what I believe was a civic cat. It was just amazing. I never thought that I could have got so close to a wild animal here in Hong Kong (and not in a zoo!).

   By m&s (192.20.246.168) on Monday, October 10, 2005 - 10:15 pm:  Edit

I'd say the one in the photo is similar to those I saw years ago somewhere in the NT. The one in the photo looks somewhat agitated-look at all that spikes on him. The few I saw were much more "friendly". I think they never saw any human before, except me. I was only 5 or 6 feet from him, and he did not back off! It did only when I approached. I wish I had a camera with me! The sighting wasn't without its downside. Before I spotted them, I smelled them. Trouble was, I was alone, and I did not know WHAT ANIMAL was it. I prayed that it was not a 200 lb wild boar!

Wild Corner (pdf)
Any sightings of civets, mongooses, ferret badgers, leopard cats, barking deer, pangolins and porcupines - live or dead - should be reported. Rare birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish, or unusual behaviour by common species, are also of interest, as are rare or interesting invertebrates and plants. If you think it is interesting, our readers probably will! Please give dates, times and localities as accurately as possible.
MAMMALS
An unusual behaviour of a Squirrel (Callosciurus erythraeus) was reported by Richard Corlett on 9 May 2005. A squirrel was seen catching flying termites (probably Macrotermes) with its front paws on the wooded slope above the Kadoorie Biological Sciences Building in HKU campus. Most of the termites were on the ground or low vegetation, but the squirrel also caught a couple from the air.


A juvenile Leopard Cat (Prionailurus bengalensis) was seen at close range by Yu Yat Tung on the Mai Po boardwalk on 18 April 2005.


An unusual locality for Chinese White Dolphin (Sousa chinensis) was reported by Yu Yat Tung; in Long Harbour, Sai Kung on 14 May 2005.


Robert Davison found a freshly road-killed Javan Mongoose (Herpestes javanicus) on the Brides Pool Road in the afternoon of 26 March 2005.

A small Javan Mongoose (Herpestes javanicus) was seen in a garden at Sha Lan Village near Tai Po, at 3.00 pm on 5 June 2005 by Ed, Phil, Bill and Tanya Glenwright.


Two Barking Deer (Muntiacus muntjac) were seen close to the trail by Danny Lau and James Hui in Tai Po Kau Nature Reserve on the morning of 10 November 2005. They rushed off noisily into the vegetation upon hearing the stepping sound of the observers.


Mike Bains found a number of Porcupine quills that were still attached to a small piece of skin (size: 5cm x 2cm) on the Hong Kong trail at approximately 500 m east of Peel Rise at around 6.00 pm on 11 October 2005.


Andrew Malone reported the sighting of a Porcupine on the path between Hatton Road and Pinewood Battery on 11 October 2005.
On 22 and 23 May 2005, Simon Dover saw Porcupines (at a distance of around 2-4 feet for up to 15 minutes) on the hillside above the stream at Tung Tze, Tai Po at around mid-night. A porcupine was seen feeding on a plant on 22 May.

   By Lawrence Lau on Saturday, January 07, 2006 - 3:29 pm:  Edit

David Cox saw a Mongoose (Herpestes sp.) at the junction of Stubbs Road and Magazine Gap Road on 18 May 2004 about 9 pm.

Two Wild Boars (Sus scrofa) (one adult and one juvenile) were seen by Eric Chan in Shing Mun Country Park (near Lead Mine Pass) at around 6.30 pm on 24 February 2005. They rushed into the vegetation after being sighted.

Fion Cheung and Alan To found a family of Wild Boars (Sus scrofa) (two adults and three juveniles) in Luk Keng marsh in the morning on 8 March 2005.

Three Masked Palm Civet (Paguma larvata) were seen at Tai Lo Shan on 23 October 2004 around 3.30 am by Samson So.

On 25 January 2005 at around 8.45 pm, Fiona Somerville saw a pair of Porcupines (Hystrix brachyura) on the Peak less then 500 m along Lugard Road from the Peak tram. One porcupine was spotted about 2 metre away and she observed it for about a minute as it didn’t seem eager to get away, while the other one was about 5 metre away.

Tom and Ed Glenwright saw a Javan Mongoose (Herpestes javanicus) run across the road leading to Mai Po nature reserve at 2 pm on 1 October 2004.

A dead Ferret Badger (Melogale moschata) was found lying in a shallow pool of blood on Mt. Nicholson Road on 7 November 2004 by Barry Bousfield. It had probably been hit by a car during the night before and was about 40 cm long and weighed about 1 kg. The dead animal was removed from the road and placed in the undergrowth nearby.

On 1 November 2004 morning at 8 am, Sally Bunker found the body of a Masked Palm Civet (Paguma larvata) at Nam Shan on Lantau. The animal appeared to have a neck injury. It was a young female with nose to tip of tail around 46 cm, and shoulder to end of body 24 cm.

While walking up the Cheung Sheung trail, above Yung Shue O, Sai Kung at 5.30 pm on 26 October 2004, Ian Cowieson disturbed a beautiful adult Barking Deer (Muntiacus sp.) that had been feeding in an open grassy area, just on the edge of the forest. The deer ran off along the tree line for 100-odd metres before taking shelter among some trees.

Two sightings of wild mammals were made by Andrew Malone near HKU campus. He spotted a Porcupine (Hystrix brachyura) in early October 2004 on Hatton Road just above the fire station, and a Masked Palm Civet (Paguma larvata) was spotted climbing trees adjacent to the single storey building, at the south side of the Main Library on 18 October at 9.45 pm.
Ian Cowieson found an injured Porcupine (Hystrix brachyura) in a car park of Shan Liu Village, Sai Kung on the evening of 7 October 2004. It was quite badly injured on its right hand side, and had probably been hit by a car. It was still quite mobile but obviously fairly seriously injured, as it stayed in the vicinity of the car park for about one hour.

Michael Lau saw a group of three Rhesus Macaque in the feng shui wood of Sheung Yeung Village, Clear Water Bay from 26 January to 12 February 2005.

A juvenile White-Bellied Sea Eagle (Haliaeetus leucogaster) perched aside a stream at Ma Wan Chung (Lantau) on 24 October 2004.

A pair of White-Bellied Sea Eagle were displaying at Shui Hou (Lantau) on 31 October 2004.

A Small Indian Civet (Viverricula indica) was spotted by Dylan Thomas on a trail above Quarry Bay, around 6:15pm on 13 April 2004. The area has thigh-high shrubs and dwarf bamboo. It was making a great deal of noise, and then crossed the path when he approached.

Dylan Thomas saw an unknown civet species in the playground of Peak School on 28 May 2004.

David Cox saw a Mongoose (Herpestes sp.) at the junction of Stubbs Road and Magazine Gap Road at about 9 pm.

A dead Masked-Palm Civet (Paguma larvata) was found lying in a water catchment beside Tsz Lo Lan Path by Grace Leung, Felix, Candy, Pig Pig, Janet, Ruby and Pinkid when they were hiking in Tai Tam on 3 June. Its abdomen was bitten, presumably by feral dogs, with the internal organs exposed.

A Rhesus Macaque (Macaca mulatta) was photographed by an automatic camera-trap at 9:43am on 4 April in Tai Om feng shui wood. The camera was placed there by Kylie Chung.

A Ferret Badger (Melogale moschata) was seen by John Allcock at very close range near the top of Sunset Peak on Lantau Island, at noon on 27 December 2003. It was carrying grasses into a burrow and regularly making trips back and forth along the same route.

Alex Wong from WWF reported that a dead Hawksbill Turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata) (below) was stranded on a beach near WWF Island House Conservation Studies Centre in Tai Po on 25 April 2004. It was about 30 to 35 cm long. The turtle was collected by AFCD on 26 April for examination.
