WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY - Video of Walk Around Mount Stewart Lake (Part 2 VIDEO)

Yesterday I showed you the Part 1 of the video I took when I walked round Mount Stewart Lake, near Newtownards in May.  Today we commence part 2 as we ascend the steps up to the Tír na nÓg. This name means "Land of the Young" in Irish mythology and  folklore.  Once again, get a cuppa coffee, sit back, relax and enjoy. If you missed the first part yesterday, CLICK HERE.

There are birds on the lake. If the video does not appear below, CLICK HERE.



There was a blue flowered plant in the video that I had forgotten the name of when I was recording and I can now tell you, it is Echium candicans.






I am linking this post with WILD BIRD WEDNESDAY.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this video with the Mute Swans, Moorhen and Mallards on the lake and thank you for your visit.

Many thanks for all the comments you leave on this post. I hope you will join me for part 3  of a shorter video as I finish our lake walk.

    1. They are tall, regal plants that, to me look like 'Soldiers standing tall with blue busby's on'

  7. What a wonderful path! I love the shallow steps, old fashioned looking little building, and the azalea. The blue Echium is stunning! We do not have them here.

    A good day!

  15. I can see why this area was called "the Land of Young" with all the steps that lead up to walkways above. The blue flowers were remarkable!
