Covered with silvergrass, Chinese wormwood, lichens, sedges and vines, Hongshuang Island is known as "Bird Island" in eastern Fujian Province. Every April to July, flocks of sea fowls stay there to breed. With a red gem-like spot on its yellow beak and distinctive black tail, the black-tailed gull is dominant among the flocks.

About 'Journeys in Nature: Eastern Fujian Series'
The coastal regions in east China's Fujian Province are rich in biodiversity. Goats endemic to the region climb to the top of the seaside mountains to graze. Sea birds circle the cliffs where their nests have been built. In this series, CGTN Nature will take you to where the mountains meet the ocean.
