 Nobody seems impressed that I took my own mouse!

We had a great morning attending Moore Nature Reserve's Mousehunt. Paul, volunteers and friends did an excellent job and we saw various wood mice and voles (bank voles and short tailed field voles).

I cannot recommend Moore Nature Reserve highly enough. The site was once fairly industrial with sand quarrying being carried out. I assume this caused the numerous ponds and lakes which are a haven for water fowl.

Incidentally the  Runcorn to Latchford canal goes through the reserve. This canal predates the Manchester ship canal!
