Family Kittiwakes & Doughnuts


June 30, 2024    
10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Meet our Geordie Seafarers

Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the worlds most inland seabird colony on Wild Intrigue’s popular Kittiwakes & Doughnuts experience. After spending half of the year out at sea, the Tyne Kittiwakes return to nest on the buildings and bridges of Newcastle and Gateshead Quayside, their calls a wild backdrop to a lively hub of restaurants, galleries, hotels and pubs.

Keen to share our urban Kittiwake kingdom with your little ones? Wild Intrigue are delighted to return this year with our popular Family Kittiwakes & Doughnuts experience! To begin the mini adventure, you will first discover Kittiwakes through the beautiful story of John Miles’s Kitty the Toon – the perfect chance to enjoy a scrumptious Proven Goods Co. doughnut! Afterwards you will embark on a Quayside Safari to meet the Tyne Kittiwakes, hearing tales of their adventures and lives, with plenty of time for little (and big!) ones to ask questions.

The Tyne Kittiwakes are an intriguing and recognised part of our urban natural heritage. As always, all profits from Wild Intrigue’s 2024 Kittiwakes & Doughnuts experiences will contribute to supporting the Tyne Kittiwake colony.
