Black-legged Kittiwake

Famous for building precarious nests on the sheerest of cliffs

Our Expert Says… "These kittiwakes choose the most inaccessible, narrow and sloping ledges to lay their eggs away from the reach of all predators. Although they have to construct the nest such that the eggs won't roll off the cliff, the lack of predation means they only need to expend the energy required to lay two eggs, unlike most other gulls who lay three or more."

The black-legged kittiwake is a vulnerable species of coastal seabird. Although its current numbers are estimated at around 15,000,000 individuals it has been in constant decline, with numbers thought to be down 40% since 1970.
