I've only walked a couple of miles along the route, but have seen Kingfishers, Dippers, Buzzards, Woodpeckers and Bullfinch, to name just a few species of bird. Dragonflies, insects, fungi and Longhorn cattle all add to its appeal. A stunning place that needs a lot more investigation by me and my camera.
One of the weirs in Wilmslow.
A great surprise to see this Dipper on the river.
In the very sandy banks of the river I came across this Digger Wasp.
Longhorn Cattle are free to graze.
