8th May 2008

Another excellent migration day with a Woodlark in flight over the obs (the 7th Hilbre record) and Little Ringed Plover (feeding between the islands with other waders) being the two outstanding birds of the day.
The supporting cast included 3 Garden Warblers, 6 Sedge Warblers, 6 Yellow Wagtails, 11 Greenland Wheatears, a Redstart, a Whinchat, a Whitethroat, 2 Chiffchaffs, and 3 Willow Warblers; not to mention a passage of 309 Swallows, 30 House Martins, 4 Sand Martins and 37 Swifts! Finches were represented by Goldfinches and Redpolls, and 5 Arctic and 6 Little were amongst the terns.
