Closed Border Area (West) – Nature

The western end of the closed border area is a wide expanse of mostly active, manmade fishponds reclaimed from Inner Deep Bay. Some of the fishponds found alternative use as duck-ponds (to meet the insatiable demand of Peking Duck in the downtown restaurants of HK).


When the abandoned duck-sheds fell into disrepair, the remaining framework provided ideal roosts for herons and egrets
