Why not have a gander at the geese? Strangford Lough is one of the major destinations for wintering birds in the UK and we hope to see Brent geese, various wildfowl and waders and even seals. Rangers will help with identification and answer any questions you might have.
This walk explores the waterside, a ruined castle, woodland, an ornamental lake and follies. Every autumn, approximately 25,000 of these light-bellied birds leave their breeding grounds in east Canada and travel to Ireland to spend the winter. Like their ancestors before them, most will arrive on the mud flaps of Strangford to refuel on the nutritious eel grass that grows in abundance here.
