“A great opportunity to watch the Tyne Kittiwakes”

Kittiwakes build their nests on nearby street lighting

In recent years, a selection of nearby street lighting has been adopted by nesting Kittiwakes to build their nests.  This has proven to be a successful choice.  As visitors and residents walk past or drive past in their cars, they often find these Kittiwakes entertaining and of great interest.
