Wildcreatures note: Martin is a tireless advocate for nature and wildlife in Hong Kong. You have probably read one of his excellent articles in the SCMP, and check out his books at the end. Hong Kong Outdoors was founded by writer, photographer and wildlife enthusiast Dr Martin Williams, to celebrate this many-splendoured place: as well as enjoying the city, you can discover rugged hills, hiking trails criss-crossing country parks, an internationally renowned wetland, waterfalls in secluded ravines, fine places to eat in gorgeous surroundings, islands set in the South China Sea. I have been on a bird watching day with Martin, and it was brilliant; highly recommended.read the story here - Click here
