Home If you find an injured or trapped Kittiwake

What to do if you find an injured
or trapped Tyne Kittiwake?

Every year at least one Kittiwake becomes
trapped or is injured along the River Tyne

Can you help?

Should anyone find a trapped or injured Kittiwake this season, please contact the RSPCA’s 24-hour
cruelty and advice helpline on 0300 1234 999. To help officers locate birds in trouble explaining
where they can be viewed from is very useful.

Very much appreciated

Any support is always very welcome.  Please help us to safeguard and protect these red-listed seagulls.  With Kittiwake populations dropping  elsewhere, every bird makes a difference.
