Directions - Ballyquinton Point is south of Kearney heading towards Portaferry, although not signposted the lane to the point has a yellow neighborhood watch sign, drive along this lane until you come to a car-park on your right hand side. From the car park look straight ahead and you will notice a white coastguard look-out post, the birds where in the ploughed field next to the look-out.
