A lovely day, we met at the Galloway House Gardens Car park for a West Galloway Scottish Ornithological Club walk.
Avenue of trees leading to the house.
The rhododendrons are stunning at this time of year!
We soon started seeing our first birds,Robin, Blackcap and Song Thrush were spotted first and Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff heard
Wild Garlic alongside the old walled garden
Watching Wimbrels and Sandwich Terns in the bay
This lovely old trees branches have touched the ground and rooted
Shelduck on the shore
Juvenile Chaffinch waiting to be fed
This pond in the gardens was full of life including tadpoles, newts and water beetles
Not sure what this is but it was very pretty
Path lined with rhododendrons
There are some beautiful old trees in this garden
Some with interesting bark
These delightful brown lambs were near the carpark.
Galloway House Gardens are well worth a visit, find out more on their website:
