Statistics as of October 31, 2019 十月底的統計資料

....item......... ....number.... comparing with Aug... (MoM)

The number of obs added to the Project further decreased comparing with Sept., only a bit more than 83% of what we gained last month. The number was expected to have dropped much more, thanks to the comeback of Hong @doggy0406, there was no drastic downsize. However, the numbers are expected to decline in coming months as well. There are quite some 750 obs of Odonata logged in Taiwan but not having been collected to the Proj. So, some reviews will be conducted in the near future to collect those left out of the Proj.
.
十月份咱這个專案所收錄的觀察記錄共九月份比起來閣進一步減少,只有頂個月的八成較加。本來按算會減閣較濟,若無芳仔(Hong @doggy0406) 重出江湖,就煞連頂個月的七成嘛無。閣去就應該會減袂加矣!毋過猶有750 幾條台灣的田嬰和秤仔的記錄無收錄入來,小可閣整理一下,共遐的收入來,嘛是真可觀。橫直咱這个專案就欲開始度小月矣,拄仔好會使趁彼陣來共整理一下。

Two things worthwhile mentioning in this Oct.
十月份兩項心適代:
.
1. "Sympetrum fonscolombii" logged at Kenting area by Sin Syue Li@cleanylee
第一項是 Sin Syue Li @cleanylee 佇咧墾丁記錄著的「紅脈蜻蜓」
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/34293478
.
The species was reported from the northern part of Taiwan and eastern islands*(1), so it was rare (at least, none as I knew of) to see one in the southernmost of Taiwan. However, Sin Syue Li stated that he saw a female last Oct at the very same spot, so the species should occur every year but nobody had ever paid attn to it before.
.
這隻田嬰目前干焦知影伊分布咧台灣北部參東部離島*(1),所以佇墾丁記錄著算講是真稀罕。不而過 Sin Syue Li 講伊舊年踮仝一个所在嘛看著一隻母的;所以應該是逐年攏會出現,只是無人捌去注意爾。(人講:「溜溜瞅瞅,食兩蕊目睭。」無的確是 Sin Syue Li 有鷹仔目!)
.
The species is considered as vagrant in Japan flying from the continent, however, many were sighted on the Pacific coast *(2), which appears quite similar here, too. There were sighting reports from the northern Taiwan, Green Islands *(3) and Kenting as well. So, it's quite reasonable to say this species also occurs along the eastern coast of Taiwan. A small population of the species scatter in the long coastal area where fewer people live might be the reason preventing the species from being sighted in the long eastern part. As we can tell from iNat community, the obs logged in the eastern coastal area are rather few as well. But as long as people keep logging what they encounter in the field, I think the sighting from Hualian & Taitung is just a matter of time.
.
這隻田嬰佇日本嘛是予當做「迷蜓」(飛毋知路的田嬰),一般是認為自大陸飛過去(日本)矣,毋過佇太平洋這爿沿海的所在嘛有真濟發現!*(2)按呢看起來略仔成台灣目前所知影的情形:北部、綠島*(3)和墾丁。咱會使合理推論:這隻田嬰佇東部(花蓮佮台東)嘛有,只是族群數量無濟,東部海岸真長,猶閣較少人蹛,所以到今猶無目擊報告;這對 iNat 觀察記錄嘛看會出來:花蓮、台東的海線,觀察記錄攏真少。逐家繼續共觀察落去,我想:欲踮東部發現這隻田嬰只是時間的問題。
.
This species distributes "in much of central and southern Europe including most Mediterranean islands, North Africa, the Middle East, Mongolia, south-western Asia, including the Indian Subcontinent, the Indian Ocean Islands and Sri Lanka." And it "has increasingly been found in northwest Europe, including Belgium, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Britain and Ireland."*(4)
.
這隻田嬰分布誠闊,本來踮佇地中海地區、南歐、北非、中東、蒙古、印度、斯里蘭卡,又閣湠到西歐、北歐親像英國、法國、瑞典、芬蘭遮的國家。*(4)
.
Regarding the assumption or hypothesis in Japan that the species is from Asia Continent, this should be hard to substantiate since many were reported from the eastern coastal area in Japan, and also eastern island of Taiwan. (It's difficult to prove it wrong as well.) Now we learnt the species also occurs in the southernmost of Taiwan. So, could it come from the south? Or would there be 2 migrant routes, one from the West, from Mongolia, then China, Korean Peninsula, then Japan & Taiwan; the other from the South (South-west), from India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Borneo (or Indochina), Philippines, then Taiwan & Japan? This is really an intriguing question! Human beings asked not only ourselves, where we are from, who we are and where we are going but are also curious about other beings. (feel like putting Paul Gauguin's famous painting, D'où venons-nous? Que sommes-nous? Où allons-nous?, as illustration here.)
.
因為佇東爿沿海地區嘛有真濟記錄,煞佮懷疑這隻田嬰是對大陸飛過去日本的假設袂對同(嘛仝款無法度證偽);而且這馬知影是佇台灣北爿、東爿的綠島佮墾丁攏有,所以伊嘛是有可能按南爿上北的。抑是講伊分做兩路?一路對大陸北方來:蒙古、中國、朝鮮半島然後日本、台灣?另外猶有行海路對南(西南)方來的:印度、斯里蘭卡、印尼、婆羅洲、(中南半島)、然後菲律賓、台灣?「大哉問!」這實在是一个真趣味的問題。咱毋但問家己對佗位來,咱是誰,欲去佗位。咱對其他的生物嘛是有仝款的好奇。(想欲共"補.久鏡"彼幅有名的圖《D'où venons-nous? Que sommes-nous? Où allons-nous?》 囥佇這。)

2. The obs logged by Hong at costal area on Oct. 26
第二項有幾若條記錄,是芳仔十月26佇雲林口湖海邊仔的觀察。
https://www.inaturalist.org/calendar/doggy0406/2019/10/26
.
Those obs show the species that we can find near the coast which are supposed to have the capacity of enduring or tolerating brackish water, some species might even prefer brackish water to the fresh one. Well, here are what Hong logged then.
.
遐的觀察記錄予咱了解啥物種的田嬰會分布佇海邊仔,這幾種田嬰應該攏有法度適應鹹水。凡勢閣有一寡是無愛汫水,愛鹹水的?下仔遮的就是芳仔彼工佇雲林口湖海墘的滯洪池記錄著的田嬰佮秤仔:
.
Ischnura senegalensis ...............青紋細蟌
Macrodiplax cora ...................... 高翔蜻蜓
Tramea transmarina euryale .. 海霸蜻蜓 微斑亞種
Crocothemis s. servilia ............ 猩紅蜻蜓
Diplacodes trivialis ................... 侏儒蜻蜓
Tramea virginia .......................... 大華蜻蜓

.
Invited by Kuan-Chieh (Chuck) Hung @pseudoshuigeeee to attending "Taipei International Birdwatching Fair 2019" at Guandu *(5), where, besides Chuck, I also met Lin Scott @linscott and Cynthia Su @cynthiasu on Oct. 19. There seems to be many birdwatchers among our members and they know one another well. I was glad to meet three members at the venue and had very good time chatting with one another. Looking forward to meeting them again soon.
.
受著 Kuan-Chieh (Chuck) Hung @pseudoshuigeeee 的邀請,我佇10月19去關渡的「台北國際賞鳥博覽會」,佇遐除了 Chuck,嘛有見著 Scott @linscott 佮 Cynthia @cynthiasu;敢若咱的成員裡底看鳥仔的人真濟,而且互相熟似。會當熟似三位咱的成員,逐家做伙開講,實在真歡喜,嘛期待再相會。
.
If any of our member comes to the northern part of Taipei and could spare some time for meetup, I wish to take the opportunity to know everyone of you.
.
若有咱的成員來到台北的北爿,閣冗會出時間,我希望有機會會當熟似咱所有的成員。

@pseudoshuigeeee Taiwanese editions were appended to the posts since Mid-Oct. The posts aft 2nd Anniversary were all appended with one. This month end report is the very first one that published with Taiwanese. I hope you guys like it. Likely, I will try to keep the posts either in these 2 languages or English only.
