Squirrel Reserve

Squirrel Woods


The children, parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles had a wonderful time on the Nursery trip to Formby National Trust. We took a walk through the woods where we looked for rabbits, red squirrels climbing up and down trees, rabbit holes, tree stumps, magpies, sign posts and chewed pine cones, to name just a few things!

We met Sally the Red Squirrel puppet who showed us what squirrels can and can't eat from their squirrel lunch boxes and the dangers of litter. 

Next week at Nursery we will be learning about baby squirrels being called 'kittens', a squirrel's nest is called a grey and how the larger, grey squirrels take food from the reds and pass on squirrel pox too. Any grey squirrels found in the reserve have to be caught and taken to live somewhere else. 

After our squirrel walk we climbed trees, played in dens and splashed in muddy puddles before eating our picnic lunch.
