|Where are we?|
Moore Nature Reserve is a lovely place to visit. Encompassed by the Manchester Ship Canal a Railway Line and the River Mersey it also has a disused canal bed running through it (a section of which still holds water).
|The Pochard is one of the many waterfowl seen at Moore N.R.|
The reserve is alongside a Landfill Site which is a great attraction for gulls (rarer gulls are often recorded at Moore). Scarce birds seen here include the Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Bitterns and Kingfisher. I also got to see my first Little Egrets last year.
|Nest boxes are placed around the reserve|
|Treecreeper...can you spot it?|
|Gulls a plenty on the adjacent Landfill Site|
|The last two images are of an unknown species spotted stuck up a tree|
