Wyre Estuary Country Park

UK»England»Lancashire»Wyre Estuary Country Park

Wyre Estuary Country Park: The park provides an ideal place for a quiet stroll and for naturalists to study a wide variety of habitats and wildlife. There are picnic sites at Stanah, Cockle Hall and Skippool.

The fenced areas within the park contain trees and shrubs, most of which are native to Britain. Examples such as Alder, Ash, Broom, Hazel, Oak and Willow can be found.

The buddleia bushes planted in the traffic islands adjacent to the Wyreside Visitor Centre attract many beautiful butterflies in the summer, such as the Red Admiral, Small Tortoiseshell and the Painted Lady.

The River Wyre lies in an area of land shaped by the Great Ice Age. It weaves its way between small hills and drumlins formed by glaciers as they progressed southwards.

The large mudflats exposed between mid and low tides attract several species of birds including Shelduck, Mallard, Curlew and Redshank.
