Kittiwakes in Flight

Newcastle and Gateshead Quaysides

Kittiwakes are great flyers. One of the best places to watch them is from high up on the Tyne Bridge. Here not only can you listen to their addictive “kittee-wa-aaake, kittee-wa-aaake” calls, but you can also watch the ‘flight dance of the Kittiwakes’.
