Taken from Victoria Peak in westerly direction around sunset. Mount Davis is in the centre, behind it a couple of islands can be seen:

Green Island with Little Green Island at the right-hand side, directly behind Mount Davis are Kai Yi Chau, Siu Kau Yi Chau, Peng Chau, and Lantau in the back.

On top of Mount Davis a couple of antennas appear. At the extreme right-hand side the Kennedy Town Munipicial Incinerator is visible.

Dugong in Hong Kong

Does anyone have any memories or observations of dugongs or mermaid folklore in Hong Kong and has anyone ever written up a comprehensive history of the 1993 Mermaid rumour in Hong Kong? Dugongs are now very rare indeed or extinct in the Pearl River Estuary.

I have an account of a 1940 Dugong/sea cow seen off Lantau and I`ve also heard of a mystery animal called the Lutung or Luting fish whose identity I would like to know.
