Family Kittiwakes & Doughnuts

June 30 @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm

We are delighted to return this year with our popular Family Kittiwakes & Doughnuts experience, the perfect urban wild escape for those with younger children (aged 10 and under).

Get ready for an exciting Quayside Kittiwake Safari with Wild Intrigue, where you will be guided on an adventure over bridges and under towers to discover our Kittiwake Kingdom, to discover families raising their beautiful chicks on city cliff edges.

First we will settle in, surrounded by wild Kittiwakes calls, to read John Miles’ wonderful children’s book Kitty the Toon. As we sit amongst the Quayside’s incredible architecture, featured in this illustrated book, we’ll explore how each of us are important characters in the story of the Tyne Kittiwakes too!

Of course there will be scrumptious doughnuts to enjoy during the storytelling, provided by local artisan bakery, Proven Goods Co.

Afterwards, we will head off on a mini adventure to meet the Tyne Kittiwakes on a short Quayside safari, and talk about their incredible winter journeys on the wild open ocean – with plenty of time for questions!

Once your adventure is complete, you will be given a copy of Kitty the Toon to take home with you, to continue your family’s discovery of the Tyne Kittiwakes and remember your wild urban adventure. 

The Tyne Kittiwakes are the most inland breeding colony of the Red Listed Black-legged Kittiwake in the world, and are an intriguing and important part of our connected urban and coastal heritage. As always, all profits from Wild Intrigue’s 2024 Family Kittiwakes & Doughnuts experiences will contribute to supporting the Tyne Kittiwakes.

If your child is older, or you believe they are ready for more in depth Kittiwake education, take a look at our other Tyne Kittiwake experiences.
