Around Loch Ken

The next we spent quite a bit of time along the Galloway Red Kite Trail in Dumfries and Galloway first heeded off to the RSPB Reserve of Ken-Dee Marshes to hopefull see a Red Squirrel sadly we were unlucky with that but with sun out saw my first Dragonfly of the year a lovely Four-spotted Chaser. No lucky with the squirrels but saw quite a few species of butterflies with the hightlight been a lovely Small Tortoiseshell and in the trees quite a few Nuthatcher and Warblers and the one of the stars of this reserve a Willow Tit alway great to see as there so in decline.

Next headed to the Red Kite Feeding Station near by to watch the Red kites feeding such a amazing sight with the kites just drifting on the air currents which most of the time you don't pick up on, must have have been at least 50 filling the sky.
