6th May 2011 – Skua surprise…

With winds and weather still far from ideal for skua passage today, it  came as a bit of a surprise when a dark(ish) morph Arctic Skua flew past me at the railings. And here is a really bad pic of it as it headed west at speed…

And then 2 large groups of Kittiwakes flew out…

No sign of yesterdays Little Stint, but three White Wagtails were present, as well as over 30 Whimbrels and a handful of Arctic and Common Terns lingered.
