Visual meteor observations during the 2007 Lyrids are analysed. A peak ZHR of 20.4+-1.1 and occurred at solar longitude 32.31 deg +-0.05 deg (corresponding to 2007 April 22, 22h20m UT), quite similar to other recent returns. Since there were some expectations for enhanced rates in 2006 due to the 1-revolution dust trail of comet C 1861/G1 (Thatcher), this data was re-analysed. No significant activity increase was found.
