Is there anywhere around these days on the wirral where you can take kiddies rock pooling , and where they are likely to actually find limpets or starfish or crabs or anemones etc, as oppose to lumps of gunge and broken glass? Thanks .

Id like to have done that spot , but it will have to wait till the little ones can walk a bit further thanks. My grandparents used to take me to Meols . Wonder if theres anything alive under the rocks now? Might go and look.

Round the groynes at New Brighton.
I saw common starfish and sea anemones
there last week in the pools round the
bases of the deeper groynes.

I used to go crabbing in new Brighton shore when I were younger, plenty down there and most parts are pretty clear of debris now.

Groynes are structures: could be wood, rock or anything really, built out at right angles to the shoreline. They control the movement of sand or shingle. Google it and you'll find pictures.
