I'd start a thread on the Northumberland forum, more chance of success.

When you visit the Bass Rock a trip to Dunbar harbour is worthwhile, There is a large colony of Kittiwake's breed there you can get whithin 20ft of the Nest's which are on a Red Sandstone Cliff lots of chances at flight shot to. Also in the Harbour are a number of Seals which feed from the Fishing Boats. It may be the wrong time of year but in most months there are Common Eider in the Harbour.
Best of luck with your trip.
Regards Jim
