Kittiwakes

The last couple of days have been spent watching kittiwakes collecting nesting materials from the foreshore here in Staithes.  At one point the kittiwakes were even taking material from a herring gull’s nest,  while the herring gull put up a fight the kittiwakes continued to pinch it’s nest.   A quick count of  nests on the end of Cowbar Nab show that the colony has nearly doubled from last year…  114 nests so far this year.
