水口,計劃展開!| Shui Hau Project Starts!

(English follows)

本計劃於2021年12月已經展開,計劃年期為3年。首階段工作會集中各樣生態研究、生境規劃、水利研究,以及試驗不同方式的生境管理工作。此外,與水口村村民和持份者的溝通及合作亦是計劃首階段的一項重要工作。香港觀鳥會在計劃開始初期與水口村村民和持份者進行多次會面,解釋本計劃的內容,目標及長遠規劃,並獲得不少村民支持。以上首階段工作為日後各階段的生境保育策略及復耕工作打好基礎,為提升水口生態作準備。

生態調查

生態基線調查及生物多樣性標準監測已經開始進行,涵蓋八個不同分類群,包括維管束植物、哺乳類、鳥類、兩棲類、爬行類、淡水魚類、蝴蝶和蜻蜓目。其中,兩棲類、淡水魚類及爬行類的調查會於晚間進行,以配合相關物種的活躍時間。大家在濕地上會看到一些豎立的竹枝,是用來給調查人員進行標準監測的固定範圍,以便研究不同類型的生境管理會如何影響生態,作前後對比實驗設計。

水文研究

在計劃初期其中一個重要工作,是取得水口農地的水源位置和相關數據,為日後制定及調整生境管理措施時提供重要資訊。因此,現時在農地不同的位置已設置地下水源監測儀器以收集有關數據。

Shui Hau Project Starts!

The Project started in December 2021 and will last for three years. The first phase mainly focuses on ecological research, habitat planning, hydrology study, as well as trial works on habitat management. Besides, we focus on engaging and co-operating with Shui Hau villagers and stakeholders during the project's first phase. At the project's beginning, we met with Shui Hau villagers and stakeholders several times to explain the project vision, information, and planning. Finally, support was gained from many of them. The above work in the first phase would be beneficial to the establishment of re-cultivation and long-term wetlands management strategies in Shui Hau.

Ecological surveys

Ecological baseline surveys and standardised monitoring were kicked off and covered 8 taxa, including vascular plant, mammal, bird, amphibian, reptile, freshwater fish, butterfly and odonate. For amphibian, reptile and freshwater fish, night surveys will be conducted as most of them are nocturnal species.

You can see some bamboo sticks standing on the marsh, which indicates the fixed area for surveyors to carry out standardised monitoring and examine the ecological effects with various habitat management measures as a before-and-after experimental design.

Hydrology study

Hydrology study is one of the important tasks at the beginning of the Project. The data collected from the hydrology study can help revise and adjust habitat management measures in the future. Therefore, the hydrology study setups were installed at different locations in the wetland for the collection of data.
