Each year in late November, a large number of migratory birds, including gray herons, egrets, coot chickens and swans fly to the Xianshanhu Wetland Park in eastern China's Zhejiang province.

The Xianshanhu Wetland Park covers an area of more than 1,600 hectares with many natural reed swings and willows. The park was named a national wetland park in 2009.
