As the local breeding population of Kittiwakes expands or as existing pairs are displaced from some of their favourite buildings/structures due to the installation of new anti-bird deterrents; Kittiwakes choose new places to nest. In the 2019 season, one pair nested on the old church which currently houses the St Mary’s Heritage Centre.
