North Shields Ferry Landing

We spent a couple of hours filming at North Shields Ferry Landing on the River Tyne on Good Friday.

This is the nesting location of the last remaining North Shields & North Tyneside colony. 13 pairs of kittiwakes raised 16 young during the 2020 spring breeding season.

Their nesting site on the Ferry Mews building was covered in bird-deterrent netting during December 2020.
