Summer is here!

When you are out and about in the Galloway Forest Park this summer remember to keep your eyes and ears open. There is an abundance of wildlife out there to enjoy watching.

Just today I was watching two young Wren families on a forest trail, chatting to and chasing one another through the trees. I also really enjoy seeing the Damselflies and Dragonflies at the moment too! If you find yourself at Kirroughtree during the next week or so look out for the common blue damselflies and Ringlet butterflies, there are quite a few about. The Golden Ringed Dragonflies pop up in a number of different locations. There are still one or two at the Otterpool and I spotted one at Kirroughtree today too.

I love this time of the year, the sounds of grasshoppers in the meadows, birds in the trees and the many different butterflies that are on the wing at the moment is great.

Take a walk in the woods, its fab!

until next time
