The survey covered 21 coastal and near-coastal wetlands along the complete length of the Fujian coast over a twenty-day period. The survey team comprised skilled counters from the University of Science and Technology of China and the Fujian Forestry Bureau. The weather throughout the survey was mostly favorable for counting, with good visibility, moderate winds and mild temperatures.
A total of 108 125 waterbirds of 65 species were counted. Given that the coverage estimated for the 5 most important wetlands ranges from 60 to 80%, and that counts were sometimes conducted under unfavourable tidal conditions, it seems likely that the Fujian coast was supporting more than 150000 waterbirds at the time of the survey.
