At Formby Beach and Nature Reserve enjoy a stroll along the miles of beaches or through the peaceful pine woodlands and look out for the endangered red squirrel.
The woods here are one of 17 red squirrel reserves in northern England; the reds are attracted by the large numbers of conifers, as they feed on the ripe pine cones.
The beautiful dunes form a part of one of the largest areas of dune habitat within the UK and provide an excellent home for many rare and endangered species such as the Natterjack Toad and the Northern Dune Tiger Beetle.
