Leighton Moss RSPBThis is my favourite reserve, it provides a variety of habitats, including Reed Beds (the largest in the North West) Woodland, Meres & Salt water pools/marsh. The diverse habitat attracts a good variety of birds, some of the more exotic include Bitterns, Avocet, Bearded Tit, Marsh harriers & Kingfishers, all of which breed at the reserve.

Martin Mere WWT reserveThis is my wifes favourite reserve, there tends to be little if any sitting around waiting for something to appear here. Visit from October to February & you'll be blown away by the sight of 1000+ Whooper Swans, together with the thousands of geese on the main mere waiting to be fed.

Sunderland PointThis is my favourite venue for waders. If you time it right, as the tide is pushing the birds in closer & closer to the road you can get some really great views (& photographs) of waders right at the roadside - likewise when the tide is going out - BUT - beware high tide as the road regularly floods here, as I once nearly found out to my cost.
