Hope Carr Nature Reserve
At Leigh in Greater Manchester, visitors can walk trails and observe birds on this 37-acre nature reserve.
Until 1990, the site was a grassy desert alongside a wastewater treatment works. It has been transformed by us into a complex array of wetland habitats, wild flower meadows, and hedgerows. Lakes, ponds and wader 'scrapes' have been dug, and banks raised to provide cover. 130 different species of birds now find a home in this semi-urban environment.
