Hilbre Flowers and a bit of hard graft.

The sea-watching hide at the north end of Hilbre has withstood the weather for over 26 years but was beginning to show its age. A team went over yesterday with the view if replacing the old plastic coated steel roof wit ha purpose made stainless steel one which was bolted down and then covered in black bitumen. Job done! A bit dodgy in the high winds at time though. Just in time for the autumn sea-watching season.

Although not a birding trip we still managed the occasional Gannet and  I took a few shots with the phone of some of the Hilbre plants.
