Ballymacormick Day

We (National Trust Strangford Lough Group) spent a good part of yesterday at Ballymacormick again.

Ballymacormick is a stretch of coastline near Groomsport, County Down.

Once again, we were burning and cutting gorse.

There's a considerable amount of it. Much of it has become so well established that the stumps are large enough for firewood.

A dozen of us made good progress; it was dry with sunny intervals; and the stonechats were never far away.

As usual, we had a good natter at lunchtime. I had my favourite cheese & onion sandwiches with tea.
