Wildlife Talk ‘Tyne kittiwakes and population changes 1994-2022’

Keen ornithologist and Old Low Light volunteer Dan Turner will give a talk about kittiwakes on the Tyne and how the species’ population has changed since the 1990s.

Dan’s ornithological interest from an early age has led to well over 30 years of surveying the Tyne kittiwakes, resulting in involvement with projects into beached birds and gulls of North East England.

A supporter of the Old Low Light, he has given talks previously and taken part in panel discussions about local wildlife. He has also provided information for display boards at the heritage centre about the harmful impact of plastic and other litter on sealife.

He is a published author of books based around the River Tyne and North East coast, some of which are on sale in the Old Low Light café.
