We’ve been taking advantage of the recent good weather to get out with our UAV Copter.  We captured this a couple of days ago while scouting around.

Spelga Reservoir is a reservoir in the townland of Spelga (Irish: Speilgeach) in the Mourne Mountains of County Down, Northern Ireland. It was formed by the Spelga Dam and sits at over 1,200 ft (370 m) above sea level.

The reservoir and dam were built as part of a project that had origins in the idea of supplying water to Belfast, in 1894.

The dam, which takes it name from the aforementioned Spelga Mountain, was built to catch the water of the nascent River Bann

While the reservoir has not been stocked with fish for some years, it is home to wild trout.
