Kittiwake chicks at Bempton Cliffs
Kittiwake chicks at Bempton Cliffs
The chicks are downy, grey and white, unlike the dappled chicks of other gull species. They are under relatively little threat of predation, as the nests are on extremely steep cliffs, but today, a juvenile peregrine falcon was resting on the cliff face nearby, eyeing up his next easy meal. Kittiwake chicks instinctively sit still to avoid falling off the ledges on the steep cliff face. This little group is about 200 feet above the North Sea.
