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.

Signs of Spring Jan Feb 2011
Crocus in the lawn
These Long Tailed Tits have become regulars on the feeders lately
A Mottled Umber Moth on the kitchen window 17th January
Toadstools growing from a stump
Thousands of geese about, these flew right over the house
and these were just up the road
Ponies near Cairn Pat
Cleaning out the nest boxes at the end of January, Pete found these unhatched eggs
Yellowhammer-a rare visitor to the garden
and a common visitor!
Frogs mating in the pond but this one appears to be blind in one eye.
