Can’t See the Wood for the Trees

Can't see the wood for the trees: Freshfield forest

Near Formby, there is a Red Squirrel sanctuary, run by the National Trust. It is an evergreen woodland, which sits between the village of Freshfield and the beach, sheltering its inhabitants. Unfortunately, Squirrel Pox has recently decimated the population, but numbers are growing again. You can try a game of ‘spot the squirrel’ in this photo, but there are no prizes.
