The gateway to the Dee Estuary reserve, Burton Mere Wetlands straddles the border between England and Wales with a mosaic of freshwater wetland habitats, mixed farmland and woodland. The area is bursting with wildlife, hosting avocets, egrets, harriers, noisy redshanks, swallows and swifts.

A longer drive from Southport, through one of the tunnels under the Mersey, this site is an ideal starting point to exploring the Wirral and the estuary of the River Dee.  From there one can easily access Parkgate, West Kirby and Red Rocks.
