The Good, The Bad & The Ugly, Lady Bay 25th September 2010

A short trip down to Lady Bay on the shores of Loch Ryan. A Lapland Bunting and a strange Warbler had been reported during the week. The track down gets rougher each time we go but its usually worth it. Our first sight was of the mess in the carpark, remains of campfires, rubbish, broken glass, cans etc. they had even left their frying pan and cooking oil.

The morons that left this should be tied to a stake when the tide is out and left for the tide to come in, preferably when the HSS ferry is due!


Several Silver Y moths about


A single Dandelion, not many flowers out now but the moths and butterflies were enjoying these.

Horses Tail

Plenty of food for the birds here, red crab apples....

...yellow crab apples...

...and an abundance of hawthorn berries!

Loch Ryan

The tide was just coming in.

Ferry coming in towards Stranraer

Bottle on the beach

The Stena Caledonia going past the workings for the new ferry port..

...and out past Ailsa Craig with Arran beyond.

A pellet not sure whos, but they eat stones!

Large hairy caterpiller, Fox Moth I think.

Blue boat and sky.

Old rope.

Worn shell.

Dead Gannet

Looking towards Finnarts Bay

Crept up on this moggy, I think it hadjust seen me!

Not today!

Plenty of Tortoiseshell Butterflies about.

The Stenna HSS ferry coming in to the Loch past Finnarts.

Moved down to The Wig next, I think this was a Goosander having a kip!

The clear waters of Loch Ryan

Mute Swan

Moved on again to the boat yard

Boats looking bright in the sunshine



Shells in the shallows

Kids having a sailing lesson.

Beautiful pictures with the obvious exceptions.It's such a pity we attract undesirables to our shores.

That's one healthy cat there !

Our ramblers group will be walking from Corsewall to Lady Bay late October.
