Another nest amongst spikes

On the 21st June 2019

One of at least three pairs of Kittiwakes that have opted to nest amongst some really tall spikes this year. Whats the point of these ugly things, carpeting some of the quayside buildings. They don’t stop Kittiwakes nesting! but they do injure them!

“We hope any chicks are ok”.
