  • Scottish Wildlife in the Rhins of Galloway
    Point This is a great spot for watching passing seabirds particularly the impressive gannets as the nose dive into the open sea sometimes quite close to the shore You may also spot storm petrels sabines s gulls shearwaters and skuas Torrs Warren and Ringdoo Point Okay this is technically right on the edge of the Rhins but it is worth visiting for the woodland birds such as siskins and goldcrests as well as waders shelducks and swans on luce sands Land Mammals When most people think of Scottish wildlife they think of red squirrels and perhaps red deer and the Rhins is lucky enough to hold both of these species Roe deer are also present and you may be lucky enough to spot fawns Semi wild goats are also present in places see below Brown hares are always great to watch here but particularly in early summer when they box Top Mammal Watching Sites in the Rhins Aldouran Glen The woodland here is a fantastic place to spot roe deer Corsewall Point Look for hares here where they chase eachother round in circles At the right time of year you may catch them boxing a sight not to be missed Torrs Warren This is actually the only place in the Rhins where I have come face to face with a red squirrel Salt Pans Bay Park at Galdenoch Castle and walk down to the bay and you should come across semi wild goats and red deer Amphibians amp Reptiles There are few reptiles that are present in Scotland and the only reptile I ve seen in the Rhins is the common lizard which as the name suggests is quite common though you may be lucky enough to see an adder As for amphibians there are plenty of toads frogs and newts in the area Top Reptile Amphibian Watching Sites in the Rhins Aldouran Glen this is one of the best sites to go looking for amphibians as the marshy area and ponds is ideal for frogs toads and newts Torrs Warren go here in the summer to look for common lizards and perhaps adders too Sealife One of the questions people often ask is where can I go whale and dolphin watching as it happens the Rhins is not a bad place for watching cetaceans from the shoreline or cliffside The most commonly seen cetacean is the harbour porpoise but bottlenose dolphins and even minke whales have been reported Like Cornwall we get the benefit of warmer currents from the gulf stream so basking sharks and sunfish are sometimes seen Turtles have also been seen with leatherbacks being the most common but stranded loggerheads have been found in the area in the past What you are most likely to see out to sea from the Rhins is seals as both common seals and grey seals are regularly seen but unlikely to breed here On the seashore itself there are of fish like butterfish wrasse plaice goby and flounder In rock
