There were three Little Egrets to the south of Middle Eye and 6 returning Curlew flew up the estuary with 8 more seen feeding in the gutter.
A Wren was singing on Middle Eye and a single Common Scoter was on the rocks to the east of the island, three male Mallard flew up from the bracken when disturbed.
Four Shelduck were on the beach at the South End of Hilbre and two Grey Heron in the rocks on the West Side. A Woodpigeon flew low over the observatory and four of the local Swallows were noted, also the two adult Pied Wagtails feeding a juvenile (hopefully there are more) but birds of the day were two Gadwall seen briefly at the North End of the gutter before flying up the estuary.
A Garden Tiger Moth was found on the slipway onto the main island.
