Railway Bridge

Newcastle City Centre

Kittiwakes love to build their nests high up on narrow ledges. Some pairs have chosen a railway bridge to settle down during the spring/summer months. This can be found as you travel away from the quayside; deeper into the city. Over sixty pairs nest in the Railway Bridge colony.
