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.

A Cold Start to the Year 2010 in Stranraer
Had to pop in to town for a few bits so had a walk around the harbour. The first thing I noticed in the carpark were the oily puddles!
Lots of boats in the harbour.
Colourful fishing boats reflected in the water
Plenty of birds on the shore including Turnstones
Pigeons were collecting nesting material and taking it under the jetty where they roost
A Common Gull
A very frozen boating lake
The gulls had managed to find a small unfrozen area
