Watch out for Pirates! 5-7 April

Hello again it’s the end of my second trip now and once again it’s been plain sailing which makes it perfect wildlife watching conditions.

This morning on the return to Newcastle I spotted a Great Skua this was really exciting as I have only ever seen pictures of them. This bird is the Pirate of the bird world, instead of catching its own food it will harass and chase others such as the Gannet until it gives up its food.
