Dunskey Glen Circular Through Port Kale and Port Mora

Dunskey Glen (near Portpatrick) was alive with birds and deer. Managed to clock up over 40 bird species. Highlights were roe deer (see below), tawny owl and ringed plover chicks.

Bo'ness, Thomas the Tank Engine and Blackness Castle

Whilst staying in the Falkirk area I took a day out in Bo'ness and came across a special event at the Bo'ness and Kinneil Steam Railway where Thomas and Friends had arrived at the station. Got some nice shots and sound recordings of the engines. Visited Blackness Castle after for a few quick shots.
