The Kittiwake is the most oceanic gull and the individuals from our breeding colonies spend roughly half of the year at sea. From February till August Dunbar Harbour is home to the largest man-made Kittiwake colony in Scotland situated in the ruins of Dunbar Castle. Kittiwake nests are found on vertical or over-hanging rock faces. The nests are of compacted mud, grass or seaweed, adhering to sometimes impossibly small ledges.
