Formby – red squirrel walk

We headed off to the National Trust site in Formby recently, mainly in the hope of seeing red squirrels in the woodlands that make up part of the National Trust land in that area, which is in the borough of Sefton Merseyside.

Formby itself had a pleasant enough town centre to walk around and there was certainly plenty of choice for somewhere to get a coffee.

We wandered through the Squirrel walk (a couple of times) as well as walking through other parts of the wooded area and on across the sand dunes and along the beach – all in all a decent trip.

Although we were not overrun with the sightings of red squirrels, we did see three and one of them was around long enough for us to grab some decent pictures.
