10th July 2017

Weather: NW 3 vis 10 mls rain showers

Another quiet day but a juvenile Peregrine flew past observers on the East side of middle and landed briefly before flying towards Red Rocks.

A Willow Warbler was in the obs garden for a short while but was the only migrant passerine seen today. At least wader numbers are slowly increasing with 22 Redshank, a Grey Plover, 2 Whimbrel and 5 Curlews
   The Oystercatcher roost on Middle numbered 200 with an additional 100 on Little Eye.
A Male Common Scoter spent the tide just off the North end of Middle and 3 Gannet were seen, 2 (an adult and a juvenile) past close in down the West side of Hilbre.
