a bitter wet start to the day so we stayed at the caravan site. when it cleared up we went on a woodland walk but saw little. at the end of the walk was a cliff-top walk into portpatrik. for the whole walk we saw:

2 red squirrels


2 common hawkers

1 thrush

2 blackbirds

4 coal tit

5 blue tit

2 oystercatcher

1 stonechat

1 whitethroat

1 grayling

2 grey wagtail

4 white wagtail

7 ripit

fluffy fulmar chicks

also in port patrick the black guillemot was there in their nest hole

over the campsite as we left there was a peregrine. at first i thoguht it was a jackdaw, then a sparrowhawk, then i saw the markings on the face.
