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 Quayside and River Tyne as a breeding site since the 1960s. They nest, not on cliffs, but on man-made structures like the Tyne Bridge and BALTIC. Watch a live feed here...
