A walk through the mosaic of grassland, heath and bog that make up Divis and the Black Mountain may reward you with sightings of upland breeding birds such as red grouse, stonechat, skylark and snipe. The site is also home to badgers and hares. Butterflies such as the small heath may be seen flitting across the site. Peregrine falcons also feed in this area so it is always worthwhile keeping a watchful eye on the sky above. In autumn also look out for fungi across this site as 13 species of waxcap fungi have already been identified, one of which was a new record for Northern Ireland.
