An immature male Red-footed Falcon is hunting and perched on fence posts near slemish this morning. View from ulster way only. Do not enter private farmland. Bird between slemish and shillanavogy (Neal Warnock)
Further info from Neal:
Park at the visitor centre at Slemish and follow the Ulster/Antrim Hills Way around the base of the mountain and downhill towards Shillanavogy. Once on open moorland, follow the white marker posts for around another 1km, the bird seems to be favouring a stretch of ground close to a small burn and heather patches, where the track reaches a long stretch of fence (circled in map below). Bird seen hunting in the area and perching on the described fence and even the white topped marker posts in this area.
PLEASE stick to the marked track and DO NOT trespass onto neighbouring farmland or laneways. The bird is best viewed from the Ulster Way (shown in red on the map).
