Birds of Bass Rock & Aberlady Bay

Bass Rock & Aberlady Bay (Scotland)
We will be taking a small coach up to the Firth of Forth departing from the Great North Museum and with a pick-up at Alnwick. We will visit the estuary at Aberlady Bay on a rising time. We hope to see late wintering seaduck such as Velvet Scoter and Slavonian Grebe as well wading birds. After packed lunch we will join a 1-hour boat tour with the Scottish Seabird Centre around Bass Rock, home to 150,000 Gannets (the world’s largest colony). We should see other seabirds such as Razorbill, Guillemot and Shag and if we are really lucky porpoise/dolphin.
Cost for coach and boat: Adults £34, Children £26 and Conc (Students and 60+) £32 . Please contact the Society Office to book.
