Hilbre rockfall

There's been a massive rock fall at Hilbre. The undercut area of cliff adjacent to the landrover track has collapsed.

Luckily it hasn't blocked the access and it just shows the power of the sea  and the fragile nature of these sandstone islands.

I made a brief visit over the weekend to do some maintenance work on some fences we'd already made a start on previously and to start clearing some mist net lanes in preparation for the spring. Wit high winds birding was virtually impossible and after a couple of hours I gave up and came home.
