Port Eynon Poms

Two Pomarine Skuas lingered off the point for 5 mins or so before heading off west, at one point chasing a Kittiwake. Pale phase adult with spoons picked up well east of point heading west and landed on sea straight out at 11:38. Pale phase immature bird was then picked up at 11:51 straight out chasing a Kittiwake. This was joined by the adult then they both headed off west together.

Nice one Barry. Considering it was a bit of a flying visit it turned out to be well worth it.

Very nice notes and sketches Barry. Much better than a distant photo.
