On December 18, the birds splashed and soared on the lake surface of Fengqi Lake Wetland Park. Since the beginning of winter this year, swarms of swans, wild geese, egrets and other birds have flew here to winter in Fengqi Lake Wetland Park in Liuqiao Town, Luxi County. Fengqi Lake Wetland Park is a lake wetland formed by the coal mining subsidence of Liuqiao Mine. It is rich in biological diversity and is a rare near-natural wetland in northern Anhui. In recent years, the ecological protection and restoration of Fengxi Lake wetland have been strengthened locally, and it has now become a home for bird breeding and habitation.
