I revisited the National Trust's Divis and the Black Mountain this afternoon, a property situated in the Belfast Hills, County Antrim.
I spent almost 1¾ hours walking along the Heath Trail, a distance of four miles.
The Heath Trail begins close to the Long Barn visitor centre.
This is a trail of heath and bog land, quite mucky in places, by way of a series of way markers along the route.
I spotted a murder (is this the right collective term?) of hooded crows en route; and a stonechat singing merrily at the top of a hawthorn tree.
Divis Lodge, with its temporary roof, awaits restoration.
