A bit of a catch up really, a selection of vessels on the River and in the docks at Birkenhead this week. The major movement of the week was the VLCC BW Lake. Others here include the survey tug Flat Holm carrying out some survey work in the West float, the Scottish tug Voe Chief arrived in the East Float. Armac Marine services MV Martin is seen here passing New Brighton on her way to Runcorn.

Also here is a quick pic of the former Historic warships, HMS Bronnington and HMS PLymouth, now looking in a very sad state languishing in Vittoria docks
