NewcastleGateshead Quayside is home to an estimated 700 pairs of breeding kittiwakes. This colony is recognised as being the furthest inland kittiwake colony in the world. Kittiwakes have used the NewcastleGateshead Quayside as a breeding site since the 1960s and breed along the River Tyne. They nest, not on cliffs, but on man-made structures like the Tyne Bridge and BALTIC. We have set up cameras on the gallery’s north wall to capture the kittiwakes in action.
