On Friday my Dad came over with my little brother, Sean. I planned a day at home and do all the housework but my Dad changed my plans! He had invited me and Elliw out somewhere. Mia had gone to her Dad's early for a change. It was pretty weird without her there, as I knew she would of loved it.
Anyway, we went somewhere just outside Newborough, Angelsey. A place I'd never been before. It was called 'Red Squirrel Forest'. We parked up and the view was stunning (above photo). We saw a red squirrel straight away but the pictures were pretty rubbish (read on to see better photos at the end). It said on the sign that it would be an hour walk. I didn't time how long we were but I think it was near enough.
I wish I was more prepared for the muddy puddles and mud sinks! It was a really fun walk. Elliw wanted a carry for some of the way but I made her walk. At some places when you turned the corner it really did feel like the path was never ending!
We came across this sign, which I found pretty funny! Although I don't understand why they say to flick it, because you'd think it being a forest, they would tell you to pick up, right? On our walk we did spot dog mess twice, they obviously forgot to get a stick and flick!
If you like an adventure, and don't mind getting messy/dirty then this walk is perfect! A proper Forest walk. The trees were huge! It was such a nice view, so green and I think we went on a perfect day! It wasn't too hot and it wasn't cold either.
I wore my Trespass waterproof coat just incase! (look out for a review soon!). It was perfect. I did get a little too hot at the end but it was really comfortable.
We reached the end of the walk. We saw another red squirrel. We watched it for about 20-30 minutes. It was so relaxing and peaceful. My brother and Elliw were quiet and well behaved too. I then saw a woodpecker in the tree. It's not a great photo but I have never had a photo of a woodpecker before!
All of a sudden, another red squirrel came down a tree, too the bottom and started eating nuts. The next thing, another one came down. They were both there for about 10-15 minutes. We watched them until they decided to go back up the tree again.
