22/02/2014 Hope Carr Nature Reserve

House Sparrow: My first visit to this little Nature Reserve in Leigh, my first thoughts were not that great, the place was full of rubbish and a interpenetration board was laying on the ground!

Tree  Sparrow: However the circular walk was pleasant and I spotted a female Sparrowhawk and Goosander, I spotted a Kingfisher on the canal and could hear Water Rail squealing in the reeds.

It was also nice to stumble upon a half a dozen Tree Sparrow chirping away, my final thoughts for Hope Carr... there is plenty of hope! Its a nice little reserve and one I will be visit again.
