Kittiwake Cam

Watch the Tyne Kittiwakes from the comfort of your own home

Over a 100 pairs of Kittiwakes nest on the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art on Gateshead Quayside.

Visitors can enjoy ‘a birds eye view’ from a viewing platform, high up on the former ‘Flour Mill’.

“There is also a ‘Kittiwake Cam‘ which streams live coverage between March and August, whilst the Kittiwakes are nesting along the River Tyne. This can be viewed via the Durham Wildlife Trust Website.  Thanks go to the Baltic and Durham Wildlife Trust for all their hard work helping to raise awareness via the Kittiwake Cam.”

Every year Kittiwakes make the narrow ledges of BALTIC their home. @Balticmill love providing a safe habitat for them to nest and they provide an opportunity for the public to experience these beautiful birds up close.

This is great for education, conservation and helps raise awareness for seabirds.
