Places to See | Co. Down, Northern Ireland.
This beautiful environment, with its contrasting shoreline, offers the nature and wildlife of Northern Ireland a place to flourish as it provides a number of differing habitats from rocky shores through salt marshes and mud flats to sandy beaches.
Despite the urban surroundings, the shoreline is home to seals and many species of shore birds and wildflowers. Oystercatchers, cormorants, lapwings, redshank, eider duck and curlew are all common either seasonally or year round. The birds seem to have become quite accustomed to people walking the path and this will allow you to see some normally shy species up close.
