The Red Beach in Panjin city, in the north east of China, is noted for it's unique wildlife habitats. Tall beads of reid are found all along the shore front. This makes the area perfect for birds of many types. At the shore front, the mud flats are covered with a red coloured plan that is particular to this area. The plan gives the beach the name by which it has become famous. During the summer months a great many types of birds can be seen on the mud flats feeding and nesting. My visit to Panjin was late in October. Most of the birds had left; migrating south for the winter. Also the cold weather had seen off the last of the bright red colour of the beach, making for more of a orange shade. The area remains interesting even then. by Derek Harkness
