Pomarine Skua at St Ives, Cornwall

This adult Pomarine Skua was one of four seen today off St Ives Island.  The images show the diagnostic rounded tail extension.  This feature is normally seen in Spring so was quite a surprise to see this bird still sporting its' "spoons".  A first year bird was also following behind but just too far out of the camera frame.


  1. Top quality images considering these are taken Land Based and superb narratives. Now I will have another good look at these.
