Statues at Hong Kong Wetland Park

Bird Statues

While at the entrance of the Hong Kong Wetland Park I came across these interesting statues of storks and other birds. I have always love looking at different statues and these really captured my attention.

The statues looked like they were made out of brass and some looked rather weather beaten due to enduring the various weather conditions over the past years.

I spotted this kingfisher on a stone bench. There were some mini crabs  on the bench across it. It was a pity that we didn’t manage to spot the real bird or any of these other animals that were portrayed in statues while we were at the park. I guess that it may have been simply too hot and they were in hiding or it wasn’t the right season to spot them.

Doesn’t it look really realistic?

They have learned about the solar system, the planets and gravity and it was a great opportunity for them to learn more about our planet.

I love that there were many different exhibits there on display and most of them were interactive so that the kids were able to get some hands on experience on how rockets were launched and even learned about how Science has evolved over the years.
