Lombard House

Newcastle Quayside

Up to a dozen pairs of Kittiwakes currently settle down on Lombard House. Here they build their nests close together often facing in different directions. These can easily be seen from the Tyne Bridge; but please be careful not to disturb them, as their eggs start hatch.
