Since mid-March of this year, more than a thousand red-billed gulls have been playing and preying on the lake of reservation area of the Eastern Royal Tombs of Qing Dynasty in Zunhua City every day. According to a staff from reservation area of the Eastern Royal Tombs of Qing Dynasty, the red-billed gulls began to appear in March of last year with only dozens of them at that time. So many red-billed gulls appeared in there, which was the first time in nearly 20 years. In the recent two years, Zunhua City has paid great attention to ecological environmental protection and successively launched combats against illegal sand mining, dismantling unqualified beneficiation, banning fish breeding in cages, planting trees alongside villages in barren mountains, and comprehensive environmental improvement of scenic spots, so that the national 5A-class scenic spot of the Eastern Royal Tombs of Qing Dynasty and its surroundings have obvious changes, which make these places attract a large number of migratory birds of red-billed gull to inhabit.
