Kittiwake Watching

Sorryt – cancelled due to rain. Sunday 19 July. 10am-3.30pm. Drop-in at any time.

Every summer Newcastle-Gateshead quayside is home to 600 pairs of breeding Kittiwakes. In mid-July the chicks are getting ready to leave the nest and the colony is a hive of activity. Join Society Director, James Littlewood at Newcastle Quayside to watch these fascinating seabirds and learn about them.

The watching will take place amongst the stalls of Newcastle’s quayside market almost underneath the Tyne Bridge. We will have a telescope for close up views.

This event is part of the North East Marine Wildlife Festival
