A week or so ago I went along to the Tyne Bridge to check out the Kittiwakes ,looking down from the bridge first they are on every conceivable point but only as long as there others there also , on the opposite side of the road a zip wire was connected down to the Gateshead side and regular zippers where sent down, it actually looked like a bit of fun apart from the part where you have to climb onto the bridge parapet before you go !!!!.
I am not sure how many Kittiwakes are now nesting here I was going to count them but it's a bigger task than you think, of what I could see there was not many chicks yet and some nests where empty.
Close views can be had of the birds nesting on the Baltic,view from the terrace below the viewing window so the building is at least serving another useful purpose apart from the great views, I did have a look over the balcony to the exhibition space all that was there was a stack of pallets, not sure if it was a piece of artwork or just a stack of pallets but what do I know .
