Black Guillemots at Portpatrick Harbour

Several pairs of Black Guillemots can often be seen in Portpatrick Harbour

We are delighted that the Black Guillemots – also known as Tysties have been spotted swimming about in Portpatrick Harbour.

These cute little birds look not unlike wee penguins and are very popular with vistors to Rickwood House Hotel in Portpatrick.

How Portpatrick looked in 1932 or thereabouts- nice to see so many at the beach. Sand still looking good today. pic.twitter.com/JjXoXGrt2F
