Loch Ryan 18th Feb

I called in at Lendalfoot en-route to Loch Ryan to chalk up red and black-throated divers again and then on to Ballantrae. There was nothing unusual there so I continued onto Loch Ryan stopping off at Cairnryan initially.

The weather was fine and sunny again and it was high tide. The south end of the loch was covered in birds. Hundreds of Scaup and Goldeneye, several Slavonian Grebes, three Black Guillemots and lots of gulls and waders.
In amongst the gulls there was an immature Iceland Gull.
Later on we visited Culzean - ravens were displaying overhead and Fulmars zoomed around the cliffs below the castle.
