With a long lens I was fortunate enough to witness this foodpass, high in the Antrim Hills. You can see that the food has just been dropped by the male & she is reaching up to grab it. She was very vocal during the whole process.
An outstanding mosaic of woodland, wetland and grassland, rich in wildlife. The complex drainage of the site is not well understood but the resultant ground water seepages produce patches of flush-mire, supporting yellow iris, common spotted orchid, bog asphodel and sneezewort; and areas of alder and willow carr, supporting great horsetail, marsh marigold, and opposite-leaved golden saxifrage. Sessile oak woodland dominates the drier slopes. Acid grassland on the steeper slopes supports heath bedstraw and tormentil. Grid ref. (SD 69510)
