Carrick a Rede Bridge

Carrick a Rede rope bridge.

Carrick -a- Rede bridge was first used by salmon fisherman in County Antrim, Northern Ireland. It’s 20 metres long and 30 metres high. It connects the island of Carrickarede to the mainland and it’s owned by National Trust. You are able to follow the cliff path and enjoy the amazing view but to cross the bridge there is a fee of £7 as of May 2017.

Razorbills are colonial birds and come to land to breed between March and July and prefer coastal cliff side nests to avoid predators. The first thing I noticed was the thin white line on their beak that matched the thin line at the edge of their wings.
