Following day, stopped off at Rockcliffe for tea & cake, sat in the tea garden & watched Chaffinch collect lichen for nesting material, whilst other Chaffinch, Dunnock & Robin hung around for crumbs but we were hungry and the cake was far too delicious.

Continuing our Scottish adventure, at Stairhaven Oystercatchers, Pied Wagtail & a Rock Pipit on the beach, a Grey Heron flew overhead to settle on the southside of the rocky bay.
Onto Portpatrick via Glenluce, in the harbour Cormorant & Guillemot. A cursory wander up to the cliffs overlooking the bay, Herring Gull, Great Black Backed Gull & Kittiwakes perched. Then off to the Crown on the harbour front for an early tea, through the window we witnessed Crows looting the condiment pot.
