Another popular pair of Kittiwakes last year involved two Kittiwakes that nested on a pipe alongside the edge of the ‘Akenside Traders’ Building.

This building has an anti-bird deterrent Gel present, which has proved successful in deterring Kittiwakes from nesting. To everyones great surprise, a pair is again present in the same place this year on drain pipe. Hopefully they will be as successful as last year.
