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.

Mull of Galloway & Auchie Glen 5th June 2010
A very misty day for our SOC walk.
Herring Gull by the carpark waiting to be fed
Guillimots and other seabirds on cliff
And a small grasshopper camouflaged thrift colour!
Pipit with food
That Herring Gull still waiting!
Mist starting to clear, we can now see the lighthouse.
6 Spot Burnet Moth Caterpillar
After a picnic lunch- off to Auchie Glen
Whitethroat with food
Goldfinch with mouthful of willowdown
Yellowhammer singing its heart out!
Mist still hasnt fully cleared but a good days wildlife watching had by all.
