|Sheltering from the rain in the hide|
|Information board in the hide|
This is probably my favourite place to be when I just want time to reflect. I have spent hours here just watching the birds and wildlife while relaxing with a flask of tea. I have seen a Stoat steal eggs from a Coots nest, rolling them into the undergrowth then returning for another until he had emptied the nest. The Coots, plus Oystercatchers and Moorhens were all gathered round making quite a fuss but all in vain. This is also the place I witnessed the Fox in the last post. The main hide has fixed benches and is covered so offers good protection from the elements. There is also a very well illustrated information board so everyone can try and identify the birds they are viewing. Haydn's Pool is within Anderton Nature Reserve also home to the world famous Anderton Boat Lift.
