26th April 2019

Weather: SE 4, 4/8 cloud, good vis

It was the first quiet day for some time with good visibility meaning very few grounded migrants at all although a single Woodpigeon was down on the island just before dawn.

Three Canada Geese did little to increase the excitement of the day but Whimbrel passage was interesting with 12 birds counted  along with 8 Curlew.

The male Eider was present off the North End and on the ‘Whaleback’ and the Dark-bellied Brent Goose remained around the main island.

It was the end of an era today when North West Construction dismantled what was left of the mast.

Ringing: Linnet [427-26]

Early morning on Hilbre Islands LNR - the last morning of the mast.
