Kittiwakes

Kittiwakes are probably the most delicate and attractive of Britain’s breeding gulls but they are in decline across most of the country. However, there are still good numbers to be found breeding in East Yorkshire and Bridlington harbour is an excellent place to get really close to them; this is where I took this photo in September 2014.kittiwake
During the Autumn and Winter months Bridlington harbour is a good place for birding with rare gulls seen fairly regularly and some very tame Purple Sandpipers as well as these extremely approachable Kittiwakes which can usually be found resting on the wall behind the fishery building on the south wall of the harbour.
