On Chapel Island

Three of us met at the main Mount Stewart car park this morning and we drove a bit further southwards, where we turned right and up a country lane. Thence we parked, donned wellies and walked across the foreshore to Chapel Island (Greyabbey).

Craig had been told that lapwings were on the island, though we saw no sign of them at all. Plenty of meadow pipits, but no lapwings. We had our elevenses there and walked back to the truck; then we had our packed lunches in a nearby field.

After lunch we motored on to Anne's Point and removed some old fence-posts.

It was a fine day; the car park at Mount Stewart was quite busy.
