Dao Co, one writer enthused “rises like a jewel blessed by nature” in the middle of the 2,832km2 in Chi Lang Nam. Few ornithologists – those birdwatchers – would disagree. It’s home mainly to a mere nine varieties of storks, Chinese pond herons, jabirus, buff-backed and grey herons, and the grey, blue and black bitterns, stopping off on their way to China, Myanmar, India and Nepal. But don’t forget the common teal, wild ducks, moor hens, the pelicans or the snipes – all faithfully recorded in the Viet Nam’s nature bible, the Red Book. Local experts somehow seem to have deduced that each flock of storks numbers 70, arriving in clusters as night falls to take up residence on their island.

In 1996, the Viet Nam office of the UN Development Programme proposed turning Dao Co into an environmental education centre, a project which would see planting of bamboo trees and introducing teaching programmes to raise awareness of environmental protection.
