Seaford kittiwake colony grows in East Sussex as UK population falls
According to BBC, the number of kittiwakes has more than halved since the mid-1900s across the UK, the RSPB said.
“But a kittiwake colony at Splash Point, Seaford, has bucked the trend, by adding another 300 pairs to its numbers, according to the bird charity. Marine environment changes had led to a decline across the UK, the RSPB said. In July the charity ran a Date with Nature project at Splash Point where visitors were able to view the kittiwakes as they raised their young.”
