Formby Red Squirrals Sept 08
We visited the Formby woods to see the red squirrels which are an endangered species. They live in a preserved wooded area protected by the National Trust. Here is the web site link. http://www.redsquirrels.info/formby_squirrels.html
The squirrels are lovely little creatures. Here is some info on the red squirrel please click the next link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Squirrel
We saw a few but it was hard to get photographs of them due to there speed and flexibility. It was amazing how high and how far they could jump from tree to tree. They lived amongst the huge pine trees. Here are a couple of pictures of the area were the squirrels live if you look close you may see a squirrel you never NO !
