On the River Tyne

Newcastle and Gateshead Quaysides

Whilst the Kittiwakes are with us, groups can often been seen resting on the surface of the River. It is a busy life nesting on the quaysides of Newcastle and Gateshead for a seagull. Kittiwakes have to travel the marathan distances to feed along the North East Coast. Some Kittiwakes travel as far as the Farne Islands, many miles away.
