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.

Glenluce to St Helena 28th November 2009
A walk from Glenluce to St Helena Island, weather not great, plenty of birds about but not a great day for photography and bitterly cold.
A distant Little Egret racing an Oystercatcher, there were actually 2 Little Egrets but we didnt get close enough for pictures
Robin high in the tree
...and his mates
A Bullfinch was spotted in the willow but didnt manage to get a clear view
The Abbey partly hidden by ugly farm buildings
Back home pink skies above neighbours farm, notice the corvids on the ground, they landed on our wires and caused a major power cut!
