There's also a good site for Golden Eagle not far from the Red Kite trail,if anyone is thinking of going up there I know the area very well as I have a caravan on the shores of Luce Bay and spend a lot of my time up there..There's a good Harrier roost,lots of winter divers,Slavs and sea duck on Loch Ryan,plus all the geese except Beans.Its well worth a couple of days up there in the autumn or winter.Also as Paul says its birder free,you've got the whole county to yourself.If anyone wants any gen feel free to contact me.Pete Berry

A great area in the winter for wild Greylag, Barnacle, Pinkfooted and Whitefonts.
Also Barn Owls and Red Squirrels near the hides alongside Loch Ken

Had a break north of the border but its hard work up there..especially in a caravan with two kids, not a great deal found but had dipper, kingfisher, grey wagtail, buzzard and raven every day.
but had an excellent day out on the Galloway Kite Trail on the A762 near Laurieston take the B795 and a small farm on the left does a feeding station every day at 14.00 at least 25 kites seen on the day I went, views down to 20foot.
also buzzard and ravens pus good views of merlin.
worth a drop in if in the area never saw another birder the whole time i was there when out and about must be loads of stuff not seen, check out the New Naturlist book 101 Galloway and the Borders.

more seen at spurn in one day then my whole holiday list sorry I missed out.

stay happy and keep birding.
