Trip Home

Time to travel home from the Mull of Galloway and at the south end of Loch Ryan were many Scaup

and just north of the airfield about a dozen Whooper Swans with Pink-footed Geese further over the field

The plan was to call into Wigtown to see an old friend, visit a couple of bookshops and have a look down to the harbour wildlife hide.
Having, completed the first two objectives, we drove down to the harbour and I was just out of the car when Barnacle Geese started flying over from one side of the river to the other. I was beginning to think that I had missed them but they just kept coming and coming.

They were still moving by the time I reached the nearby hide. 

 It was impossible to capture the size of the movement with the camera but here is a try

Driving back along the A75 there were large numbers of goose flocks in the air
