Best of the seabirds were Manx Shearwaters, 53 today some feeding close to the north end, also 4 Gannets, three of which came right up the east side diving for fish off the West Kirby shore. Several Razorbills were floating on the sea, 2 Red-throated Divers flew at the north west of the island but no sign of yesterdays Puffin. Also seen today were 10 Whimbrel, a flock of 1,000 Dunlin around the island and a Canada Goose. No Brents were seen, they may have all departed now.
