Wirral is the peninsula lying between the rivers Dee and Mersey in North West England, and it is blessed with a wide range of different landscapes, including woods, farmland, reed beds, salt marsh, extensive beaches and lowland heath. The varying habitats are used by many different species, making the region an excellent base for bird watching.
The area, particularly the Dee Estuary, is of International importance for Shelduck, Pintail, Oystercatcher, Knot, Dunlin, Black-tailed Godwit and Redshank, and it is of National importance for 13 more species, notably Curlew, Ruff and Lapwing.
Wirral Bird Club caters for all who have a common interest in wild birds - from the mildly curious to the keen, from the beginner to the experienced - all are welcome.
