Kittiwakes on the Baltic
Kittiwakes on the Baltic
Until the Baltic Flour Mills site was developed as an arts centre, despite being 10 miles from the sea, it was home to lots of breeding kittiwakes. A special tower was built to accommodate the birds (see NZ2663 : kittiwake tower Gateshead with Spillers quay on north side of Tyne and LinkExternal link ) but some of them prefer their original choice! There are 20+ pairs of birds and chicks on this ledge, seen from the viewing gallery of the Baltic.
