24th December 2009

A Red Fox was confirmed today when footprints were found in the snow, there are not many who have seen such a sight at Hilbre !
No Lapwings today but a number of decent sightings: - A Fieldfare kept company on the ground with 5 Blackbirds, 4 Song Thrushes, 4 Robins, a Dunnock and single Meadow and Rock Pipits.
A Siskin flew down the east side, there was a male Peregrine and also a male Sparrowhawk that was at one time in the 'Heli' trap and flew across the obs garden.
Three Teal added variety to the duck records recently of only the single Eider (which is still present).
