9th June 2010

A light easterly in the morning did not deter a few sea birds from appearing near Hilbre on the tide, there were 230 Common, 60 Sandwich and 5 Little Terns and a single Gannet. At 15.30hrs a Great Skua flew north, an excellent record for this time of year.
During the day 10 Swifts and 8 Swallows were logged, a gathering of 7 Little Egrets were in the east gutter, and at 14.30hrs and out of season Whitethroat appeared on the island.
