   Ng Tung Chai
    Site Description

Hidden in a ravine below Tai Mo Shan, Ng Tung Chai has some of Hong Kong's highest waterfalls, fed by mountain streams. The waterfalls, together with the trickles, pools and well-forested mountain streams, create a haven for some local dragonfly species that are restricted to such habitats.

    Site Protection

The site is within Tai Mo Shan Country Park.

    Survey method

The surveys focused on adults and were carried out on sunny/fine and windless days between 09:00 and 15:00. Walking transect count method along a standard route was adopted. All the dragonflies observed along the transect were identified visually, with the aid of a pair of close-focusing binoculars, to species level following Wilson et al. (2004).
