11th March 2019

Weather:  WNW 5, 5/8 cloud, good vis

A brief visit today produced a good count of 228 Pale-bellied Brent Geese that also included the colour-ringed bird ringed in Iceland in May 2016 and first seen at Hilbre on 23 November 2016.

Three Eiders were still present - a drake and two females.

A single Robin was caught and ringed.

Small numbers of waders were noted along the tide edge including 15 Grey Plover, 32 Redshank, 150 Knot and a more impressive 300 Sanderling.

Ringing:  Robin [12-7]
