Woodland walk at Breen Forest on Glenshesk Road

Saturday 17 February 2018

Breen Forest on Glenshesk Road

Join the Glens Red Squirrel Group for a woodland walk at Breen Forest on Glenshesk Road Saturday 17th February 12:00, we will try and see if we can spot some of the shy reds that make Breen their home and the other wild life that may comes along, treecreepers are common and keep an eye out for a sparrowhawk or buzzard hunting among the trees.

Come along and enjoy this wild jewel in the Glens. At one time, oakwoods covered much of north–east Antrim. Gradually, the trees were felled for timber and the land cleared for farming. Today, Breen Oakwood is one of the last fragments of these once extensive woodlands.

The paths are not suited for prams and to increase the chances of seeing Red Squirrels and other wildlife, please do not take your dog on this walk.

Good footware is a must as ground is soft. Sturdy walking boots & suitable outdoor clothing.

From Ballycastle or Armoy Village take the Glenshesk Road. Breen Oakwood is signposted along a Forest Track free parking available at forest gate.

Booking a must in the event of changes in weather conditions. Email info@glensredsquirrelgroup or txt your booking to 07742 841 273.
