Hundreds of species of birds breed here, hundreds of species of lotus grow here, and tens of thousands of acres of reeds stretch out here. 

On August 8, Internet media interview group of the "Promote Ecological Construction and Grain Production, Consolidate and Enhance the Advantages of Green Development" activity visited the Tieling Lotus Wetland to learn about the ecological development here. 

Since 2013, relying on the unique ecological resources and geographical advantages of Lotus Wetland, the scenic spot has held "China Tieling Lotus Culture and Tourism Festival" for six years. In addition, the scenic spot successfully broke the Guinness World Record for the largest number of lotus varieties on display. There are 619 lotus varieties in the scenic spot, setting a new world record. 

According to reports, more than 800,000 square kilometers of lotus flowers have been planted in Tieling Lotus Wetland, and there are lotus ponds, pavilions, fountains, teahouses, cruise docks, observation platforms, etc. 

In addition, a special flower exhibition will be held every autumn to enrich the cultural life of the public. 

Tieling Lotus Wetland is not only a good place to enjoy flowers, but also a good place for bird-watching. The scenic spot has dense bird nests, such as red-crowned cranes and egrets, as well as more than 100 species of wild birds such as oriental white storks, the first-level protection animal. The wetland is the habitat and migration passage for nearly 123 species of birds. It is a paradise for water birds.

The wind brings fragrance of lotus, and blue water is rippling. Wandering in the Tieling Lotus Wetland can make people feel relaxed and happy. It is worth mentioning that in the scenic area of the lake there are three artificial bird islands. The lake area is bird-oriented and people and ships are not allowed to enter. Visitors can visit the scenic spot during opening hours to observe birds and enjoy the spectacular moment when thousands of birds take off.
