Thousands of migratory birds including egrets, swans, and wild ducks were recently spotted in Ninghai Bay, Ningbo, East China's Zhejiang province.
Ninghai Bay's well-preserved ecology has made it a haven for migratory birds, according to an official of Qiangjiao town, Ninghai county.
Ninghai Bay is located in the middle of the migration route between East Asia and Australia. Every spring and autumn, a large flock of migratory birds will stop at the bay for roughly a week to forage. A few end of staying permanently.
Night patrols are being carried out in the wetlands around Ninghai Bay regularly to protect the visiting birds.
