Additional Information 补充信息:

The intertidal mudflats of the East China Sea are recognised internationally as important locations for shorebirds, especially the "critically endangered" Spoon-billed Sandpiper and the "endangered" Nordmann's Greenshank. Of particular importance are the Jiangsu Province coastal wetlands especially the Tiaozini and Rudong mudlfats of Dongtai and Rudong Counties. This stretch of coastline attracts millions of migrating shorebirds annually. The images from this gallery were taken mainly during the summer and autumn at both locations. The future of these wetland habitats, once at risk due to land reclamation, are now secure following support from the Chinese Government which led to the Tiaozini mudflats in autumn 2019 being listed as a "World Heritage Site".
