“Hilbre Island” – Matt Thomas

“Hilbre Island is situated at the mouth of the Dee Estuary, which is one of the ten most important estuaries in Europe for overwintering wildfowl and waders.  Hilbre Island is also important as a stopping-off point for the twice-yearly migration of birds along the west coast of Britain.  On the island is the Hilbre Island Bird Observatory.

The summer months also provide a perfect opportunity to see Grey Seals swimming just off-shore, bobbing their heads above the water and watching those on the island.”  (

This illustrated presentation will take place at Kingsmead School Hall, Bertram Drive, Hoylake, CH47 0LL.  This is not a ticket event – please just come along.
