1862
2021년 2월
I was here again to look more closely at the bridges. The first ones here were Victorian ones made from blocks of stone before 1862. When a second railway line was added they put in the "new" 1928 concrete bridge. On the Victorian line, the one that’s on the landward side, they replaced the span of the bridge. You can still see the older stone blocks on the walls to either side. Behind fences you can just about still see other Victorian stone arches that hopped over tramways running from the limestone quarry that operated here in the past.

Go through all the bridges and you see a great vista across Belfast Lough. Depending on the weather and season you can see Scotland, County Down, and sea birds, or the swimmers, yachts and row boats that come out of Whitehead.

Breezy walk along the coast
2020년 6월
Went along the lessy known coastal side of Whitehead down along Beach Road at the Beach Road Nature Reserve. This small coastal community nature reserve is a natural splendor with its wildflower meadow attracting bees and buttreflies, the cliffs of the old quarry attracting nesting peregrine falcons and the coastline where dolphins can be seen follicking. Very breezy day this time but I managed to walk along the coast to near White Harbour which is a little Tranquil harbour tucked into the cliff side on the outskirts of Whitehead and then back round to the old Whitehead quarry. The only issue I think is that the some of the scrub around the quarry could be removed to make some further improvements and possibly make some improvements to the path around the quarry area.

Bullfinch and pheasant.
2020년 5월
I enjoyed a visit yesterday evening. Even before going in the gate I could see a bullfinch sitting on a bin. Its the first I'd seen all year. Inside the park the Sun had set and layers of bird song were coming from the trees all through the quarry area.

I turned to watch a train passing, and was surprised to hear the strange call of a cock pheasant. Its a loud, harsh, almost mechanical double note, like a metal trowel pressing to a grinding wheel. The bird itself was strutting around and called again with a visual display three more times at intervals.

I went through under the 1928 railway bridge to stand by the sea. This park gives you both a sea view, and a patch of trees, with wildlife watching opportunities that vary by time of day and month of the year. This place is free to enter and never closes. There's a free car park beside it, and some picnic tables at that end.

Local doggy park

Great for a short amble with the dog. In spring and summer, you can observe falcons, and in autumn there are blackberries at the derelict quarry

Cliffs and beach
2019년 3월 • 가족
There's picnic tables at one end, and a huge lawn. Trains go by, lots of birds and flowers, and at the far end a tunnel down to the seashore. Great to explore with the kids. Not far from the train station.

Summer flowers
2018년 8월 • 개인
The peregrine falcons that hatched this year are still to be see on the cliffs of Whitehead quarry. Below where you walk is a field of wild flowers. You meet lots of extra walkers there these days.

Nature Reserve
2018년 5월 • 친구
Beach Road Nature Reserve is owned and managed by Mid and East Antrim Borough Council, and is a supportive habitat to a wide range of birds, insects and plants. Recently the local community group 'Brighter Whitehead' received a grant from Better Belfast to make substantial environmental improvements to the reserve. Beach Road Nature Reserve is home to a wide range of birds, insects and plants. To discover just a few of its habitants – stop, look and listen. The colonisation of the quarry by trees, shrubs and wildflowers has created a home for a diversity of birds and insects. A wildflower meadow boasting a rich mix of flora and fauna has been created to further enhance the site. Wildflower meadows are an important habitat for many species of insect, bird and mammals. Insects need specific plants on which to feed and lay their eggs. Peregrine Falcons are known to nest here, so bring your bioculars!

Picnic spot
2017년 8월 • 개인
In August this attraction is covered in flowers of every colour. It is famous for the visiting falcons, but later in summer families like to have picnics when the flowers bloom and great numbers of butterflies appear everywhere. This is very close to the town's train station; just look for the blue iron foot bridge at the end of the station, beyond that is Beach Road with the reserve at the end.

Fly away chicks
2017년 6월 • 친구
I was here again to see the wonderful falcons. They had returned again to nest, and this time there were three chicks. Birdwatchers from far and wide come here to see this spectacle. There were even people from Vancouver, Canada. Sometimes the falcons fly out and patrol the cliffs. Through a tunnel under the railway line you can get out to the seashore. There are picnic tables and a free car park here.
