Raven Meols Hills - sand dunes in Formby
These are in Cabin Hill National Nature Reserve, see LinkExternal link from English Nature who tell us:
"Cabin Hill NNR forms part of the Sefton Coast, the finest dune system on the north-west coast of England. The reserve is within the Mersey Estuary Special Protection Area (SPA) the Ribble and Alt Ramsar site, and is also within the Sefton Coast Special Area of Conservation (SAC)."

"In 1970 a flood bank was created by the water authority to protect low-lying land behind the dunes from tidal surges. This left wet slack areas on either side which have since become important for wildlife including natterjack toads."
