We have had glaucous gulls, eider ducks and many other species spotted here but Dunbar Harbour is one of the best places to spot Kittiwakes. These are a medium-sized gull, with small yellow bill, dark eye, grey back and white underneath and  their little legs are short and black. In flight,the black wing-tips show no white, unlike other gulls, and look as if they have been 'dipped in ink'.These are 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 most accessible Kittiwake colony in the UK in  the ruins of Dunbar Castle.
