29th May 2021

 Weather: SSE force 1, then N 1 later in the morning, mist around the coast

 A lovely morning but quiet bird wise, a couple of Goldfinches came through but little else until a Collared Dove flew swiftly down the island, scaring our member who was pointing the obs chimney !

The Whitethroat was still singing, this time at one stage from the roof of "Gus Lowe's" house. The moth trap (below) was deployed last night and came up trumps with Lime Hawk Moth, a new species for Hilbre !

 Eight other species included Marbled Coronet, Brown Silver line, and Foxglove Pug.
