The stream that flows through part of the Northwich Woodlands is called Witton Brook and it enters the towns main waterway the River Weaver at this point.
It was from this brook that the local rangers pumped water to refill my favourite place for bird watching which really suffered from last years drought... Haydn's Pool.
Haydn's Pool... is looking fantastic.
The birds are back but the water levels are still quite high for the waders... I did see a Redshank feeding on one of the islands.... so fingers crossed for 2012.
Witton Brook from the path alongside Haydn's Pool... that's Northwich town centre in the background.
I live within walking distance of this wonderful nature reserve... it's 374 hectares of mainly reclaimed industrial land and home to some amazing wildlife... and it's my favourite place to relax.
