Living in Woodford has tremendous benefits. We have the convenience of Stockport and Manchester close at hand but are well connected to the rolling farmlands of North East Cheshire and the Derbyshire hills. This gives plenty of opportunity for wildlife to come visiting.
The idea of this page is therefore to provide an opportunity for those of us around Woodford to share observations, photos and comments on the natural world and wildlife around us.
Hopefully through shared experiences we will improve our enjoyment and understanding of our local environment whilst protecting it for future generations.
In June 2020 a red kite was seen flying over the Blossoms Lane area. It was identified because it is larger than a buzzard, has white bars under the wings and a very distinctive curved tail. Apparently, sightings have increased in the area recently.
We will include any notable wildlife sightings in Woodford. Let us know if you see anything unusual and better still have a photograph to send us: firstname.lastname@example.org
