Thousands of birds flock in China’s northeast wetland

As temperatures rise, hundreds of thousands of birds, over 40 breeds, gather in the National Nature Reserve on the estuary wetland of the Yalu River in Dandong, northeast China’s Liaoning Province.

The sanctuary is the largest migration hub for birds flying from Australia and New Zealand between April and May on an annual basis. After nearly a month-long leg there, the birds will continue their journey to northern breeding grounds like Siberia and Alaska in mid-May.

Currently, the number of birds arriving in this wetland has reached its peak. They could be seen gathering in flocks and swirling in the sky in synch with the tides, or landing on the beach foraging for food. The spectacular scene has drawn large crowds of visitors and photographers to capture the beauty of nature.
