Those blobs are the famous Lough Neagh fly.
Hmmm, I know them well - but not as well as those who live by the lough. The University of Ulster used to have a freshwater research post at Traad Point (very close to Ballyronan) & sometimes it wasn't actually possible to drive to it as the flies were so thick visibility was reduced to a few feet!

It's a Good Job the things don't bite, otherwise the whole area round the lough would be a no-go area for mammals Wink
