Shut off from the mainland by the tide for five hours in every 12 is Hilbre Island, it’s no surprise that Hilbre Island was a favourite stop-off for smugglers in the 18th and 19th centuries. At least that’s what the rumours say. Nowadays, it’s more famous for its wildlife – grey seals, oyster catchers, curlews and sometimes kestrels – who’ve made the Dee Estuary their home. Its a 2 mile walk from West Kirkby, but be careful for the tide, as the island is cut off from the mainland 5 hours out of 12.
