We live at Keepers Cottage, on The North Rhins, SW Scotland and because of its situation and the variety of wildlife that can be seen in and around the cottage, I decided to keep a wildlife diary. We also enjoy regular walks in beautiful Dumfries and Galloway and beyond which I also record here, with photos and few words.

Soleburn, Loch Ryan 3rd July 2009
A short evening walk down on the shores of Loch Ryan near Soleburn.
I spotted a ladybird eating an aphid.
Wave warning signs are placed right around the shores of the Loch warning of the wake that comes in after a ferry has passed. The ferries go from Stranraer and Cairnryan to Northern Ireland.
Female Eider and young, the loch is becoming an important site for them.
