Kittiwakes on Mumbles Pier

This photograph, taken by Gemma Crutchley a couple of weeks ago, shows the shelving you can only see from the pier itself. Although very few Kittiwakes have attempted to breed on the new shelving this year, they have gradually becoming more interested. Perhaps not the resounding success we were all hoping for, but the future does look bright. More importantly perhaps, the future looks more secure for these attractive seabirds at this site.
