If birds are your thing, then the RSPB reserves in Northern Ireland are the place to come and visit. Rathlin Island has one of the largest sea bird colonys in the British Isles because is home to the Rathlin puffins. Even the very rare corncrake has made an appearance here in recent years and choughs are often to be seen. Strangford lough is one of the RSPB resverves in Northern Ireland greatest successess. It is a bird watchers paradise and makes for some happy bird watching.
Here in Ballygally we have some fabulous bird life too both land and sea birds. There can be no other self catering in Northern Ireland with such a diverse variety of wildlife to view from the windows due to the beach, sea, countryside and the hills. And of course being in a “Designated Area of Natural Beauty” helps.
