Have just got back from some time away in Scotland, Dumfries and Galloway to be precise and have got hundreds of photos to go through and dispose of. Some that I have already looked at are the ones taken on the first day at a Red Kite feeding station close to a place called Laurieston in the Galloway Hills.
The Red Kite has had a breeding programme and release schedule in Galloway for a few years and a feeding station set up on a private farm called Bellymack Hill Farm. This place regularly gets 100 kites coming to meat that is put out at 2 o'clock every day, come rain or shine and is an ideal way to get up close and personal with these magnificent birds. Shame the clouds were thick and the sun hard to come by on our visit, but that was to be the story of the entire week we were away!
More photos will follow of other creatures and some scenery.
