The River Mersey (/ ˈ m ɜːr z i /) is a river in the North West of name is derived from the Anglo-Saxon language and translates as "boundary river".

The river may have been the border between the ancient kingdoms of Mercia and Northumbria and for centuries it formed part of the boundary between the historic counties of Lancashire and Cheshire.

The start of the Mersey is at the City: Liverpool, Manchester. The Mersey Estuary stretches for a distance of about 30 miles from the upper tidal limit of Howley Weir in Warrington to the sea. At its widest point, between Hale Head on the north shore and Ince Bank on the south, it is about five kilometres across.

The Mersey Estuary has also become very important, at National and International level, for the survival of many wader and duck species, a fact which has been recognized and designated in several ways. Inmuch of the estuary was given the status of Site of Special Scientific Interest to help safeguard its habitats and wildlife.

About this book. The Mersey Estuary is one of the greatest natural assets in the northwest of England. Although some of the best areas for birds on the Mersey have no, or very limited public access, there are a number of sites where the wildlife can be observed.
