The twelve Mallard ducklings have survived the night, but were last seen heading off to an uncertain future across the sands towards Red Rocks this morning. The drake was resting in the sun before flying across to join them.
There were 11 Swallows about today, one of which flew into the obs briefly, not an unprecedented occurrence at Hilbre.
A sea watch produced 43 Gannets, 105 Guillemots, 4 Little Terns and 3 Harbour Porpoise, while round and about were also 3 Whimbrel, 3 Common Scoter, 14 Shelduck, 350 Dunlin and a small number of Ringed Plovers.
