The Perfect Picture

Flock of Dunlin

The Perfect Picture captured at Portstewart Strand

Portstewart Strand has been the backdrop for the 'perfect picture'. This picture of a flock of Dunlin taking to the wing on the Strand, won the much coveted Perfect Picture Award at the Live Here Love Here Coca-Cola 10th Anniversary Coast Care awards presented at Parliament Buildings, Stormont. National Trust volunteer Wilbert Mcilmoyle captured the moment and was presented with the award by BBC television weatherman Barra Best. Following the award he paid tribute to the efforts of his colleagues at National Trust for their work at Portstewart Strand and Dunes in maintaining this superb stretch of coastline in pristine condition to attract and support such beautiful and varied wildlife.
