Weather: SW force 2/3 rain and drizzle brightening in the late morning
The overnight rain did not prevent 5 Willow Warblers making it to the island, although only one was found in the central trapping area. All were bright sulphur yellow juveniles.
Observers at Hilbre will be on the look out for the Boneparte's Gull that was found this morning on the nearby Hoylake shore high tide (below)
On the sea before the tide 3 Gannets and an Arctic Skua were logged.
Ringed: 4 Linnets, 1 Willow Warbler. [ 450-31 ]
