Bird watching on Wirral

The Wirral peninsular has a variety of habitat ranging from woodland to open shores. Where to watch birds on Wirral depends on the time of year and the weather conditions. Both the Mersey and Dee estuaries are internationally important wildlife sites for waders and wildfowl in winter. Wirral also boasts one of the best places to see leach's petrel on the west coast but the weather conditions in the autumn have to be just right. Many a rare migrant also turns up both on spring and autumn passage.
