THROUGH MY LENS

This is a photograph I shot on Strangford Lough, near Newtownards.  It is an Area Special of Outstanding Beauty and a site of  European importance for nature conversation. It is designated an Area of Special Scientific Interest, a Marine Nature Reserve,a Special Protection Area and a Special Area of Conservation under the European Birds and Habitates Directives respectively.  Most of the lands in the  National trust's care is intertidal and intermittently covered by the sea, comprising 6,000 hectares of shore and seabed.  


Tomorrow I will tell you a little more about this important area and show you one of the many waders to be found on its shores.

I am linking this post with THROUGH MY LENS.

Thanks for visiting and also for leaving any comments.
