Great Skua 2 October

With sea passage continuing offshore at Holme, a late afternoon visit to Snettisham produced this Great Skua feeding on a gull on the tide-line. Nice to get one on the deck at close quarters. The only drawback was the howling wind buffeting the camera and telescope ! Seawatching at Holme the next day was dissappointing, but the 4th managed to again produce goood views of Great Skuas from the Dunes, with a single more distant Arctic Sua followed by an impressive group of 7 Pomerine Skuas, which included 4 birds with tail Spoons.
