Sea Birds rest on the rocks in front of Hilbre Island off the coast of West Kirby at the mouth of the River Dee.
A photograph from the top of the observation tower on Hilbre Island looking out to sea over the remains of the old Lifeboat Station that was in operation until the late 1930s.
I love the way this small weather station stands on top of the cliffs on Hilbre, white paint contrasting against the red rocks and green grass.
I love little pieces of history, and the Lifeboat Station on Hilbre island is a beautiful old building that now houses a bird hide. Turn round and you're looking out on the power of the Irish Sea down the ramp once used by members of Hoylake Lifeboat to save those in peril on the sea.
Sea birds wade through the receding tide in front of Hilbre Island at the mouth of the River Dee, Wirral.
A cold winters sky is refelcted in the waters surrounding Little Eye, the smallest of the three Hilbre Islands off the coast of West Kirby on the Wirral.
After an evening of frustrating skies and nothing really happening, the sun dropped below the horizon and suddenly turned the sky to a fiery red and pink glow behind Hilbre Island, the colour was incredible.
I love the bright green seaweed that sits on these rocks just off Middle Eye, they create a lovely leading line toward Hilbre Island.
