Princess Kitty – on Queen Street

On the 18th July 2021

Newcastle Quayside

Many years ago, Kittiwakes nested on Queen Street on Newcastle Quayside. The owners of the building installed avi-shock however, displacing the birds.  As 2021 dawned and the Kittiwakes returend for another season along the tyne; a small group of Kittiwakes, gathered again on a building on Queen Street.  They built nests below the avi-shock and laid their eggs.

And… here we have princess Kitty from Queen Street. The posh Tyne Kittiwake Colony.
