Queen Street – Newcastle Quayside

Brand new building chosen

For the 2021 season 5-6 pairs have chosen to nest on a building on Queen Street in the heart of Newcastle Quayside. This is close to a local shop and below the Lombard House colony.

The Lombard colony is also expanding with birds nesting on both sides this season. Fresh Photos for the Lombard colony will follow later this week.


We wish the Queen street birds lots of luck and we very much hope they will be welcome. Daniel is aware of them also.
