Special Xmas 2009 news

News has just been released of a new species for Hilbre Island ! A Rockhopper Penguin eudyptes chrysocome was seen and photographed at the north end by two lucky observers for a short period on 11th November this year. It was reported as very confiding and didn't seem at all inclined to enter the water. Intense observation discovered it to be a sub-adult female.
