Arctic Skua

Pendeen after work gave up this dark phase Arctic Skua, the sea watching bug has finally bitten.
Lots of Manx Shearwater, 3 Balearic Shearwater, 1 Grey Phalarope and 1 Great Skua viewed within 50 meters. I had difficulty in locking onto this Arctic due to its dark phase and falling light. Looking forward to Thursday!


  1. The water looks rough! Nice photos though. Sometimes I can't get a focus on a flying bird when there's too much movement behind it. You did a nice job.

  2. Hi Sam,

    John Foster here:
    Did you get any photos of the dolphins there that evening? No matter what quality, would like to confirm the id.


  3. John, Unfortunaely no photo's of Dolphins.
