Manchester is home to a wide variety of wildlife: waterbirds, waders, black redstarts (rarer than ospreys or golden eagles) and peregrine falcons. These are the world’s fastest birds, capable of reaching 120mph in a dive, and they are culling the city’s pigeons.
Join Steve Bourne for a city safari. Please bring some binoculars!
