That's a really cute and unusual bird! I;ve never seen anything like this on Lamma! What is it?

Guy, could you please also post the bird names with your daily photo? Quite a number of people are clicking on your Bird of the Day photos on the home page and then would like to know what bird it is.

Thanks. Is a White-breasted Kingfisher - several pics previously posted in "Lamma top 10 Birds".

I'll see what I can do about naming them, although all birds are shown at some time or another in "Top 10" along with many other excellent photographs from Yi Gou, Harry & others.
But back to the weather......

Thanks Bob.......... very kind of you :oops:
No images are missing......... are all on page 1.

As to the why..........
If I kept posting all the images as a "latest post" we'd be several pages longer by now.
Regulars who know about the little "latest post" icon on the front forum page can click on it and see the latest weather report.

However, there are people who either:
a) don't know about the "latest post" icon;
b) don't want to trawl through 20 messages & images in the latest page
c) when they see "Weather Report" will click on the tag line on the front forum page & will be taken to the first page,.....meaning they would then need to either look through umpteen pages to see all the images, or then go to last page to see the latest entry....... as it is they get taken to the latest weather report which is the first entry on the first page and can at the same time see all the images posted.
d) or might want to see all the images on one page (the first page)
e) or might want to see the weather report from the observatory & see how it's panning out or has panned out
f) or it might just be me, being bloody minded.

Whichever...... it works for me :shock: 8)

As to the why some images are retained in subsequent pages, is generally when people have "replied" & so as not to make their remarks redundant.

But the # of views this thread is generating is getting smaller as people get bored............ however seems to be a general malaise in the forums, and on some days there are very few comments or input anywhere. So may as well carry on.
Shall try & think of making it more interesting as soon as I have the time.
But in the meantime are getting an image a day from Lamma, which can't be all bad......... Can it?

Wow, more pictures for the 'Butterflies and Moths' thread.

Very nice, Guy. I would think that they are a bit more difficult to capture with the same satisfying punch that your bird photos have become known for, especially with those species having soft-edged colouration.

On the other hand, it's a lot less risky than wasps (unless Lamma has man-eating moths :D )

They got it all wrong yesterday, but at least the laundry got dry. Lets see if they can get it all wrong again today. Either way should still be good if you have any laundry left to do. Is noticeably warmer this morning

Guy,
giving the names of your Bird of the Day would really be appreciated by your many fans out there!

Is this the funny, extremely unusual one with the huge red beak you've featured before?

Wow, that must be the most indecent picture ever published on this website! :eek: :oops: :wow:

Is this really suitable for the Photo of the Day on the home page???

Well, let's try it and see if we'll get any complaints from moral-minded people...
If we do, they'd probably be from non-Lammaites...

Congratulations, Guy!

That Photo of the Day of the Kingfisher today (June 14, '06) is almost perfect! Composition, pose, sharpness, cropping, contrast, colour, blurred background, it could hardly be any better in the photographic and aesthetic sense!

I dub thee "Official Court Flora & Fauna Photographer of Lamma.com.hk"

Weather forecast for today

I reckon it'll be chilly to begin with a cold breezy walk along the ferry pier, but there will be blue skies & sunny weather throughout the day. So wear something warm but not too heavy.

24/01/2006 - The northeast monsoon is still bringing cold weather to southern China.

Cloudy. Cold in the morning. Sunny periods during the day. The maximum temperature will be around 16 degrees. The wind dropped for a while last night but has picked up again this morning & although they are moderate north to northeasterly winds, occasionally fresh at first, reality is that in exposed areas they are quite icy.

Image
Outlook : Temperatures rising in the following few days. Rain patches over the weekend.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>


23/01/2006 - Another cold & wintery day today being very cloudy with one or two light rain patches. Cold in the morning. Bright periods during the day. The maximum temperature will be around 14 degrees. Moderate northerly winds, fresh over offshore waters at first.

The minimum temperature will be about 11 degrees in the urban areas, and two to three degrees lower in the New Territories (that's us) .

Definitely a need to wrap up........
