Adjust font size:

Wetlands in Cangzhou, Hebei Province, became a paradise for waterfowl as more than 1,000 birds arrived there last week for their winter migration, and more are due in the next month, a survey found.

More than 1,000 waterfowl in 15 species including swans, common cranes and egrets were seen in Cangzhou's wetland areas along the Bohai Sea.

"It is seldom for locals to see so many water birds in a winter like that of this year," experts said, indicating that warmer winter days in certain regions may have affected the birds' migration patterns.
