Both an excellent seawatching site and a migration hotspot, Fife Ness is situated to the East of the picturesque fishing village of Crail....
The FBC Edenside Hide

The FBC Edenside Hide

The hide is sited on the estuary bank at the eastern edge of the saltmarsh behind the Riding Stables at Edenside.
This Hide is located on the edge of the saltmarsh at the NW corner of the outer area of the Edenside Stables, and we are particularly indebted to Ray Gatherum and Fife Council for allowing us to place it here. It is sited close to the high tide roost at Edenside which serves many of the birds which frequent the inner estuary throughout the year - notably waterbirds such as wildfowl, waders, gulls and terns. The Hide was completed in September 1992 and officially opened in December of that year by Les Hatton, the Eden Estuary warden of Fife Ranger Service.
The Eden is a site of international importance for wildfowl and waders and is especially important for the populations of Common Shelduck and Black-tailed Godwit which it supports. Many ducks and waders use the Eden Estuary as a staging post on migration, e.g. Brent Geese, Ruff, Whimbrel, Curlew Sandpiper and Knot, while Green Sandpiper and Little Stint are seen most years.
