11th September 2017

Weather: NW 6-7, poor vis

An early morning visit paid dividends for one observer with a single Leach's Petrel being the highlight of an ebb tide seawatch.

Three Manx Shearwaters were also noted as was a single Fulmar.  There were small numbers of terns including 70 Sandwich and 25 Common counted but the best was a Black Tern found by Little Eye battling it's way against the wind.

A visiting birder (@ColDav10) came on for the tide and had a superb seawatch which included a possible Wilon's Petrel, if accepted this will be not only the first record for Hilbre but for Cheshire and Wirral too, check out his blog here:
