There was also an RNAS at  Kai Tak called HMS NABCATCHER in the post war years.

Was this the same place, the name having been changed at some time?   

Yes, HMS Nabcatcher was the forerunner to HMS Flycatcher and occupied the same site. The name change occurred in April 1947 after Nabcatcher was paid off and RNAS operations at Kai Tak wound down.
