Exceptional Skua passage - Criccieth today!

Amazing numbers of Skuas off Criccieth today. The annual spring passage combined with a strong south-westerly produced an incredible 27 Long tailed Skuas in one flock and 65+ Pomarine Skuas though out the day. Smaller numbers of Great and Actic Skuas on show too! Unbelievable and what a spectacle!

  1. Mmm, having witnessed some of the Pom Skuas I am intrigued about the other claims and for those who are interested I've posted a little over on my blog about this and other records that have bothered/intrigued me for a while.. plus a seabird ID confessional!
