On 9 January, 39 species of birds was recorded in a single survey at the northeast corner of the airport island, reflecting the wide range of birds that can be found at HKIA. The survey recorded 180 egrets and herons on the silt curtain around Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge reclamation area, a Wryneck (an ant-eating woodpecker) near the petrol station, and a Fork-tailed Sunbird which is the most recent addition to the 135-species list of birds recorded since October 2012.
