Over two-dozen Kittiwakes continue to nest

Update for Guildhall – Newcastle Quayside


Over two dozen Kittiwakes have continued to nest on the Guildhall, down on Newcastle Quayside. A single pair are nesting close to the roundabout and street-lighting pairs. A second pair are nesting high up, just below the clock tower. On the Clock Tower itself, over two dozen pairs have nested and seem very happy and comfortable.

“Hopefully the owners will not install new anti-bird detterants on the clock tower next year.  Fingers Crossed”.

Such an amazing place to nest.  Lots of residents and visitors are stopping to look up at them and they are fast becoming a popular tourism attraction.  Let’s hope the local council welcomes them also and we don’t see any new anti-bird deterrents there before next season.
