This single loon has been the Lamma Celebrity of the Week, attracting bird photographers with professional equipment to the shores, ferry pier, even renting boats to get closer. Only spotted every 4 years or so in HK, it created a social media storm not just in the birdwatching community. I've never seen that many photos, videos, stories and comments about a single bird and the commotion it caused for DAYS all round YSW Harbour. Here's one from Guy Miller who watched it all from a distance being amused and bewildered at the same time as he's usually almost the only serious birdographer around our shores:

Many more photos and videos of the object of affection of all these loonies, err, serious bird photographers:

Dina writes: "Chasing LOON ( RED-THROATED DIVER ), a very rare species, by some very serious LOONIES with their colossal lenses!"

And here's quite a bit more of the local feedback on this "invasion":

More photos of the watchers by another Lammaite birdographer, zep:
https://www.facebook.com/Lamma.Gung/posts/10154118963858149

He writes on Mar 19:
"News of the rare red-throated loon got around fast as Lamma was invaded by hordes of 'loonies' this morning, much to the puzzlement of local residents. The bird appeared oblivious to all the fuss."

Yes, they are very active - you can hear their poo-poo-poo-poo-poo-poo-poo-poo-poo-poo-poo... even at night. Sure sign of spring.

Lamma Bird of the Week ~ 6/6/16:

Greater Coucal ~ by Guy R.H. Miller ~ More from this photographer...

Guy found his photo not worthy enough to be Lamma Bird of the Week:

"I post a lot of photos [Editor: in his excellent Lamma Island Bird World Facebook group] to show what is around, the rarely seen, or heard & not seen, or that in some way are an oddity for those that know their birds & their habits....
not for technical perfection....

In the case of the Coucal above...
is often heard & seen, but rarely up close ....
is an opportunity to show others that don't know, the extent of the plumage & the beautiful eye colour."
