A Gannet rested on the rocks at the north end, quite an unusual happening at Hilbre. A Common Sandpiper was the other star bird of the day.
The moth trap last night had good results:
However, the best moth was found in the Obs - a Short-cloaked Moth; very scarce on the islands and the first here for our 'moth man' in residence (DCT). Photo below and Gannet by Elliot Montieth.
