Walk for Kittiwakes
Avian enthusiasts have arranged a walk to draw attention to the plight of sea birds – particularly the kittiwake – in the Mull of Galloway. They are walking to help support the work being carried out at the local RSPB Scotland nature reserve.
Thousands of birds including kittiwakes, guillemots, razorbills and fulmars make their home in the area.
However, numbers have been falling with the UK kittiwake population now half its 1986 level.
The sponsored walk on Saturday hopes to help study and tackle that situation.
The walk is scheduled for Saturday starting at 11:00 from the RSPB visitor centre at the Mull of Galloway.
Participants will be informed about the work being done to assist seabirds like the kittiwake.
