Vintage rare binocular, signed H. Rendon, Priestnall Hey Heaton Mersey.
Heaton Mersey Common is a local nature reserve (LNR) located on the north side of Didsbury Road. See google map at bottom of page.
The image on left shows the main features: a large pond and a stream, woodland, a wildflower meadow and grassland all connected by footpaths.
To the north of the LNR is a recreation space; this was once the site of a large house and estate called ‘Priestnall Hey’, formerly ‘Heaton Villa’.
Heaton Mersey Common has a wide range of habitats providing shelter and food for wildlife. Woodlands support birds (e.g. great spotted woodpeckers), insects and plants (e.g. red campion). Deadwood provides shelter for insects and other invertebrates, which are eaten by woodland birds, and fungi grows here, in the canopy and on the woodland floor. Ponds support a range of plants, insects, birds, mammals and amphibians.
