23rd February 2011

Three excellent records occurred in the second half of the day starting with a Short-eared Owl which flew down the east side around noon and landed on Middle Eye. In the afternoon a Jackdaw (a scarce Hilbre bird especially down on the island) was calling from the buildings and was quite distinctive showing white primaries patches. Rarest of all in the late afternoon a Tawny Owl was seen to fly from Red Rocks across the east hoyle bank and continue towards the south end of the main island.
