The large brown Canadian Geese and graceful white swans have become a familiar sight on the Quays. But have you noticed a single white domestic goose among them? We don’t know how  he arrived here, but he likes to hang out with the swans and they seem to like him too.

How can you resist the huge eyes of the Blue Bee-ter bee? We’ve been hypnotised by this bee-autiful sculpture – one of 230 in the Bee In City public art trail. There are 23 bees located around Salford Quays and each one is uniquely enchanting and guaranteed to make you smile.

The Quays’ heron is a majestic sight to see. You’ll often catch him waiting patiently at the waterside near the Holiday Inn Express. When in flight this tall bird is an impressive sight with a wing-span of 175-198cm.
