Great Skua







Great Skua are one of the toughest species around. This species is seen commonly offshore in the North Sea and Norwegian sectors where it beats up on most species of seabird - although it tends to stay clear of Fulmars if it can.

This is one of the most regular skua species seen during seawatches off Skogsøy, Øygarden..
