3 Days in Northumberland - Kittiwakes
One of the noisiest birds on the Farnes is the Kittiwake, with the charcteristic call of "Kitt- i-wake" all around you. The adult birds can be also identified by their plain yellow bill (no red markings as in some other gulls) and black legs. In some ways, however I find the mottled patterns of the juvenile birds more interesting.
These birds are quite gregarious and can often be found in large groupings.
