Coastal path looking West
The North Down Costal Path runs from the centre of Belfast to Donaghadee, about 20 miles all told. My patch is a two mile stretch from Carnalea into Bangor and the Long Hole - the old harbour. It follows the South shore of Belfast Lough and as well as the usual shore birds and waders the Lough attracts passing migrants. Hopefully I will be in the right place at the right time to add a few to the list.
