2nd April 2012

A short visit of only an hour and a half, managed to log quite a few birds, the best of which was 2 drake and 1 female Goosander flying south west, a good record of this scarce species at Hilbre. On the sea were 6 adult Gannets,10 Common Scoter,a Red-breatsted Merganser, while on the shore 25 Grey Plovers, 20 Bar-tailed Godwits, a Little Egret and 650 Redshank near the Tanskeys. A Common Seal was out on the east side of Middle Eye.
