An adult Wheatear was on Hilbre today, obviously a wandering non-breeding bird, meanwhile 4 Linnets fledged in the wildlife garden and the first Blue-tailed Damselflies of the year in the form of 3 males appeared on the main pond. Other insects included a Map spider in the wildlife garden and 2 Painted Lady butterflies on Middle Eye. Nine Shelduck flew north in addition to the 4 locals around the islands today. Two Grey Herons and 2 Little Egrets were on the shore.
