With winter fast approaching, we sent our weather presenter Kerrie out to find a little bit of blue sky for the latest in our series exploring some of the region's most picturesque places.

Her recent adventure takes her a tiny island that's home many rare birds, seals and even boasts it's own dinosaur footprint.

And if you're thinking of following in Kerrie's footsteps to Hilbre Island always check the tide times, and the safest route to follow.
