Whenever I visit Formby Point which is about 30 mins from my house I always show the woods, which is great, but as I only saw 1 red squirrel and the fox was nowhere to be seen I thought I would show the other side to Formby Point.
The first shot is showing the beach, its looking a bit shabby in the picture, but great for wading birds, it was also getting late in the evening and looks much nicer during the day. You can make out the windmills from the offshore wind farm.
Something I had never given much thought to is how big the windmills are, you can see in the next shot when scaled against a passing boat they are huge, the other thing that really surprised me when I was looking through my photos is the bird flying by, if I'm not mistaken its a Gannett, we could see something diving into the water but this wasn't in my list of guesses.
So just to finish off here are a few bird shots, the first one is a pair of crows, looks like they are settling down for the night.
