The park is finally back open to the public after ten days of being closed due to the snow and ice. The North West and especially the Sefton coastline has seen some of the worst winter weather ever, it is certainly the deepest and longest lasting snow I can remember.
It has been a hard time for the animals with many choosing to stay indoors while the snow is on the ground and others being forced to due to the extremely cold temperatures, -17.5C measured in Crosby just a few miles from the park! It has been very hard for the local wildlife too and many of the animals and birds are very hungry and are very active around the park looking for any food they can find now that the snow is melting. the wildlife in your gardens will be in the same situation so if you have any suitable leftovers throw them out for the birds instead of your food bins.
