Avoid disturbance to birds around nests 請勿干擾雀鳥營巢

Disturbing nests is against the law

Section 5 of the Wild Animals Protection Ordinance states:
Protection of nests and eggs
No person shall, except in accordance with a special permit, take, remove,
injure, destroy or wilfully disturb a nest or egg of any protected wild
animal. (Amended 58 of 1980 s. 3; 77 of 1996 s. 4)

If you see this happening again, please collect evidence of the disturbance (number of photographers, how close to the nest, removal of branches for a better view etc) and contact Mr Yam Wing Yiu the AFCD officer responsible for the nature wardens at 2474 2591 or simply go directly to the Mai Po Warden Post and inform the nature wardens.
