Weather; SW – 6, rain early morning moving to West 7 gusting 8 later

With the wind only starting up early morning we were not expecting big things however  a Long tailed Skua on Hilbre gave us some inspiration. Sea watching highlights from Wirral included:

Arctic Skua (3)
Fulmar (4)
Manx Shearwater (8)
Sandwich Tern (28)
Gannet (50)
Guillemot (1)
Great crested Grebe (1)
Red throated Diver (2)

The Pressure chart above shows the weather for 07.00 on Monday 16th September. With the Low moving slowing East, Force 7 to 8 West to North Westerly winds are forecast. If the forecasters have got it right, we are hopeful of some exciting Wirral Sea watching over the next few days.
