More than 100,000 rare migratory birds have settled in the Binhai New Area as part of their autumn migratory route.

As the largest wetland nature reserve in Tianjin, the Beidagang Wetland is rich in biodiversity and complete in ecosystem. The birds assemble here to replenish.

There are more than 80 species of migratory birds, including geese, white egrets, red-breasted ducks and oriental white storks, with an estimated number of over 100,000. When the migratory peak occurs in the middle and late October, a “Swan Lake” scene will be presented here.

After entering October, a large number of migratory birds stop at the wetlands almost every day, and continue to move south after the river is frozen, according to Yao Qingfeng, head of the Wildlife Conservation Division of Beidagang Wetland Nature Reserve.

The wetland has released for the sixth consecutive year 10,000 kg of fry in batches to provide birds with food supply.

 Beidagang Wetland Nature Reserve Management Center has set up a full-time patrol team to conduct 24-hour uninterrupted patrols and rely on security facilities to protect the safety of wetlands and migratory birds.
