St Marys Heritage Centre – young chick

Last year we recorded a pair of Kittiwakes building a nest on the St Mary’s Heritage Centre in Gateshead. This year we witnessed a successful hatching of a young chick.

At times alongside this pair up to a dozen Kittiwakes are present, relaxing on this historic building on the Southside of the River.
