Mull of Galloway part 2

After leaving the end of the Mull we headed in the only direction possible, North.
Port Logan was the intended destination where major work is being carried out on the pub.
Although there was much activity at the top of the beach beside the pub, about a dozen Brent Geese were plodging about at the waters edge

We wandered onto the pier and recalled many past sightings from here of Basking Shark fins as they fed in the bay. Too early for any this year.
Making our way back just outside Port Logan we spotted some Greylag Geese in an adjacent field with an interesting pal

At first glance I was getting carried away thinking, is it a Snow Goose? but on closer reflection it looks too large and a bit 'Greylaggy'.

What do you reckon?

On return to Portpatrick I managed to capture this single Black Guillemot who have occupied the harbour for years. I noticed before we left that a second one had appeared on the scene.
