Millions of migratory birds gather in E China wetlands for winter

Millions of migratory birds flew to the Hongze Lake Wetland Scenic Area for the winter. Every October, migratory birds come to stay at the east China wetland until next March. 

The Hongze Lake wetland in Sihong County, Suqian City, Jiangsu Province, is the largest freshwater wetland in east China. It is an ideal place for migrating birds due to its good water quality, luxuriant vegetation and abundant aquatic food.  

Due to the continuous efforts in environmental protection and restoration made by the county in recent years, the public became more aware of the impportance of bird protection. As a result, the number of migrant birds seen here has increased year by year, with bird species increased to 206.
