Storyline


South China's Guangdong Province has seen flocks of migratory birds spending the cold winter days at its wetlands.

In Gulao Town of Heshan City, the expanses of fishponds and about a hundred banyan trees dotting the water network create a perfect place for the egrets and some other birds from the north.

"There are many more egrets in recent years. At most, they could be seen covering all the trees and rooftops," said local resident Wu Bingyang.

The Yinzhou Lake in Jiangmen City has received thousands of migratory birds. The Nansha Wetland of Guangzhou City has also attracted some 100,000 migratory birds for rest and food, including 40 black-faced spoonbills, a globally endangered species.

According to official statistics, the number of migratory birds gathering in Guangdong in the winter and their varieties have been rising over the years thanks to the improving local environment.

The birds arriving in the southern province for winter days each year wouldn't leave until the spring of the next year.
