    Monkies in Sai Kung

    Hiking around the reservoir in Sai Kung a couple of days we found a family of monkies, and could hear more in the trees/cliffs nearby.

    Is this new? I've never seen monkies this far east before, have they recently emigrated from gold hill / Wong Tai sin temple area or did I just miss them before?

    That is what immediately came into my mind "hey hey we're the monkies". Obviously engraved in my memory.

    I've seen monkeys about every day for the past two weeks. First in the Sai Keng area, then even closer, in the O Tau area, and this week already at the roundabout between Sai Sha Rd and Tai Mong Tsai Rd.

    Yesterday we saw a large group along the road to Wong Shek Pier, but it's another story.

    We had a troop of Monkeys that lived in trees that surrounded our village. This time of year they used to toss our outdoor furniture around on our roof top!
    Plus, we had to be mindful not to leave the ground floor kitchen window unattended as the monkeys would send one down who would steal things off our window ledge. One used to sit on the bin of our bus stop when I took the kids to school some mornings. All part of the fun of living in Sai King, the Monkeys, Barking dear, porcupines, civet cats, wild boars, cows and various snakes.

    Great fun, if you like wild life
