Another season begins

On the 31st March 2019

The Kittiwakes have been spending time together on the surface of the River Tyne this week in small groups. Many others, have been settling down to nest and bonding with their partners. Nice to see the Kittiwakes so relaxed and comfortable in their urban home.

Some Kittiwakes have been exploring the wonders of the Quayside.


It must be amazing to view the river from the air, gliding through the sky, whilst the rest of us are busy with our daily routines.

A short rest, before their eggs start to hatch for another year.
