Formby Pine Woods

Ian, William and I are in the North at present, visiting family for Christmas. Much of our time has been spent in Formby and on the 23rd we took our traditional Christmas trip to the pine woods / sand dunes.

Sadly the red squirrel population has declined dramatically due to a virus and for the first time in my life I didn't see a single squirrel.

It's peculiar when there is so much angst and sadness in the world with which one learns to live and almost ignore, that this made me feel really sad.
