Flocks of oriental storks spotted in wetland of E China



Flocks of oriental storks, a migratory bird species under the country's first-class state-protected species, have filled the sky over the Lianyungang coastal wetland in east China's Jiangsu Province.

Hundreds of oriental storks are observed foraging, chasing, and resting on the wetland before returning to northern areas.

The Lianyungang coastal wetland serves as an important stopover site along the East Asian-Australasian Flyway, one of the world's great flyways for migratory birds. The flyway witnesses large-scale bird migrations occurring between November and March of the following year.

Thanks to conservation efforts, monitoring data has indicated a growing population of rare and endangered bird species in the wetland, with oriental storks, smew and Eurasian spoonbills recorded in the area since 2020.
