Rhins of Galloway

A few days touring around the Rhins with good weather was very nice,our first stop was the RSPB centre on the Mull of Galloway with very friendly and helpful staff ,great webcams of seabird life on the cliffs its the safest way to watch without risking life and limb when a stiff breeze is blowing ! arriving quite late by our standards meant it was quite busy so bird life above the cliffs was quite scarce but on the ground there were good numbers of these green beetles .
 these turned out to be Rose Chafer Beetles .
Portpatrick is my favorite place and this is where the rest of the pics were taken
these black Guillemots nest in the Harbour walls
I wondered why i got so close their youngster was just over the edge(not known at the time)
last but not least was this quite obliging juv Wheatear .

                                                   Thanks for looking.
