5th November 2009

Early today 11 Whooper Swans flew across Middle in a southwesterly direction obviously heading for Wales.
A flock of 800 Starlings kept up the recent records of numbers passing Hilbre these last few weeks, and more went through in smaller numbers later.
The sea produced a single late Gannet and an adult and juvenile Kittiwake, also 4 Great Crested Grebes, 2 Guillemots and 2 Common Scoter.
An exact count of the Brent was possible today and amazingly it was precisely 100, just as estimated yesterday!
