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.

December Snow North Rhins
Well the snow arrived later than elsewhere on The Rhins but it finally arrived on 18th December. The view from our front window.
Long Tailed Tit on one of our feeders
Snow caught in a fennel umbel
Over our fence
Snowy front gate
Our road one way...
...and the other
The frozen burn
and the woods
Now its been gritted, didnt do much as so cold and not much traffic
Our back garden
The snow was very powdery to start with but Pete finally managed to make a snowman on Boxing Day!
