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.

Corsewall Point 25th July & 4th Aug 2010
A bit of a dull day so decided to stay on the North Rhins and have a walk from Corsewall Point. Corsewall Lighthouse and Restaurant.

We saw a few birds including a Peregrine and plenty of Gannets but it was very windy and not great for photos
