Aberlady Bay

March 27, 2013
Posted by admin

Summer is often a quiet time for birds, but the returning winter birds as well as passage waders may begin to appear in late July. By the autumn, up to 10,000 waders may be present, with Lapwing and Golden Plover the most numerous. Several hundred Widgeon feed in the bay, while one or two Short-eared Owls may be hunting over the marsh.

Aberlady Bay has a reputation for attracting rare birds, like Ospreys in the spring and a female King Eider which has been attracted to the bay for the past seven summers. Other rare birds that have made flying visits over the years are the Caspian Plower and the Western Sandpiper (a small American wader).

    Service was excellent for our large party (23) and Malcolm and co could not be more helpful even ferrying us back and forward from the various golf courses as part of the service. Food in the restaurant/private room on the Friday night was memorable especially the best lamb I have ever tasted so top marks to the chef and restaurant staff. Breakfasts good and plentiful and again that little bit extra when a few stragglers missed the breakfast window but were looked after anyway. Will be back ag… Service was excellent
