    Find out about the local birds and wildlife at the Mull of Galloway RSPB Reserve which is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest.

    The Mull of Galloway RSPB Reserve is one of the organisation’s smallest, yet it contains an amazing variety of wildlife, with each season bringing fascinating wildlife to the point. For information about events on this reserve, check http://www.rspb.org.uk/events/.

    In spring the cliffs are a noisy scramble of guillemot, razorbill, fulmar and kittiwake. Overhead raven and black-backed gulls soar while black guillemot and puffins bob in the sea.

    Summer sees skeins of gannet, pied wagtail,meadow pipit and white-throat bustle, while autumn brings tern, skua, shearwater and common scoter swallows, house and sand martins. Linnet, goldfinch and the increasingly rare twite can also be spotted flocking together to guard against the patrolling peregrine falcons. In winter eider duck shelter and shags brave the storms on the rocks.

    An RSPB warden is at the centre five days a week to answer wildlife questions and take occasional guided tours. Volunteers are at the centre two days a week to help with any queries about the area.
