The Mersey Valley Project


#MerseyValleyProject #EuropeanCityOfScience #Manchester

The Mersey Valley in the Manchester area runs through Stockport and Trafford, linking some superb wildlife habitats together, including Sale Water Park, Chorlton Water Park, Carrington Moss and Mersey Vale Nature Reserve

The big news at the moment is the drake North American Wood Duck at Heaton Mersey and the arrival today of a drake Greater Scaup on Chorlton Water Park with 47 Northern Pochards

Ring-necked Parakeets, one of the Manchester Big Five, are resident along the Mersey Valley, Otters are reported occasionally and Kingfishers are resident

The Mersey Valley provides many Mancunians with a place for natural keep fit and nature experiences
