Sea gulls arrive in Qingdao for winter

(chinadaily.com.cn) | 2020-11-03

Hundreds of sea gulls have arrived at the Zhanqiao Pier, a popular seaside scenic spot in Qingdao, Shandong province, to spend the winter.

According to the scenic spot's management staff, this is just the first of sea gulls, as many more are currently en route to Qingdao.

Qingdao boasts a suitable environment for the migrant birds, as the city launched a sea gull protection program more than two decades ago.
