The story of the Tyne Kittiwakes all began in the town of North Shields. Over the past few decades, any buildings, the Kittiwakes have chosen themselves to nest on, have eventually been demolished. In recent times, a colony has been present on the Ferry Mews building, adjacent to the Ferry Landing.
