Flight Dance of the Kittiwakes

As the breeding season ends, and many of the young Kittiwakes start to fledge, they skies close to the quaysides of Newcastle and Gateshead are filled with the ‘Flight Dance of the Kittiwakes’. Not only are these amazing birds amazing flyers, but this is the only place in the UK where you can view Kittiwakes in flight inland.
