Nesting Kittiwakes on North Head
Nesting Kittiwakes on North Head
The cliffs of North Head, from Fleswick Bay northwards, have ledges eroded in the sandstone, which provide ideal nesting sites for Kittiwakes, visible only from the sea. In April or May, a sea kayak trip from St. Bees to Whitehaven gives an opportunity to see the cliff nests at very close quarters.
