Skua numbers have been steady with seven Arctic Skuas including one or two loafing on the sea and a pale adult that downed a Kittiwake and sat a few tens of metres offshore for a good half hour on Saturday. Two Great Skuas north, one distant and the other almost over my head. A single Sooty Shearwater yesterday and a few ducks, Teal and Common Scoter this morning.
In the south bay I counted 19 Mediterranean Gulls this morning, including 2 juveniles and one that was much further advanced towards 1st-winter. A colour-ringed adult Kittiwake was also on the beach.
