16th July 2017

Weather: NNW force 2 mist and light rain

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.
