The main bird species on Mount Stewart lake are little grebe, mute swan, mallard, tufted duck, coot and moorhen. These birds are all resident in Northern Ireland.
The Ards Peninsula currently has one of the healthiest populations of endangered red squirrels in Northern Ireland. However, there are concerns about the spread of the non-native grey squirrel and the National Trust is carrying out a survey to assess the spread of the grey squirrel into the area. If you do see any, please let us know.
