Red Kites of Dumfries & Galloway

I am now in Northern Ireland but on the way up to Cairnryan for the ferry I stopped along the Red Kite Trail of Dumfries & Galloway and a place called Bellymack Hill Farm.
It took a while for the red kites to be close enough for photos but in the end was well worth the 3 hours wait to get these shots.
There were a total of around 40-50 kites glilding around.

Teatime was shared amongst the gulls at Stranraer with our chip butties.
 We then spent the night at a B&B at Cairnryan ready for our ferry in the morning.It was a nice evening so we walked around the bay shoreline and were treated to a gannet diving just off shore as well as a pair of common terns.
