Weird but wonderful

Take a look behind you next time you're at the Giant's Causeway. Our rangers discovered Dog's Vomit Fungus, and this moving fungus could be coming after you at the rate of a snail. It turns out this moving fungus is more common than you might think.

What to look out for this season

  • Look and listen for skylarks in the meadows above the cliffs
  • Thyme broomrape sprouting around the rocky slopes and cliff top path
  • Eider duck and ducklings close to the shore in the sea in Port Ganny
  • Look out for basking sharks on calm days from the cliff top path
