A general view of a Hongze Lake Wetland close to Suqian town, China.
Hongze Lake Wetland provide a safe habitat for hundreds of thousands of migratory birds to live through the winter.
Nowadays people grow crabs and fish in a fish nursery ponds around the wetland. Traditionally some of the local people were catching fish using trained cormorants, but very few of them are today using this way of fishing.
