Jinshitan Sea-farming Ponds March 20, 2012

Very little in quantity but some new quality. The constant contruction has me spending the first 20 minutes trying to figure out how to get in! Every time there are literally new trails and different ponds are filled in. When I only have one hour, it's frustrating wasting time navigating a way to the ponds. Migrants trickling in. In Jinshitan I rarely see huge numbers but there is usually a few of everything. Today is a good example of that. There are areas with large flocks but they are not reachable after work for me.
