Moore Nature Reserve

I have recently taken up bird watching quite seriously and am currently exploring the various sites in the North of England that offer opportunities to enjoy both the bird watching and taking photographs of the birds and the often accompanying beautiful countryside.

This morning I paid a visit to Moore Nature Reserve which is just SW of Warrington and next to the old Manchester Ship canal. Because of limited time I was only able to visit the Birchwood Pool, Pump House Pool and the Lagoon. There are some excellent hides to view the wildlife and chance to enjoy your coffee and snacks (take them with you) as you wander around this excellent nature reserve.

Bird life was prolific (invest in a good pair of binoculars to get the best from your visit) and if you are a keen photographer like me, take a good camera (mine is a Pentax K70 with Sigma 18-250 lens) with a quality zoom lens.

Below are some of the photographs I took of the lagoons and the wildlife on display.
