Great skua

The rainy season has started with as much rain in the last two days as we had in the whole of April. It has made the sea watching much better with no heat haze and clear visibility all the way to the Lothians. Lots of puffins past Crail today. They will be chick feeding now and very busy for the next two months. I saw my first great skua of the year passing the May Island this evening, heading out of the Forth: a long way out but distinctive nonetheless – huge, dark and heavy.
