Arctic Skua

25 June 2019

One of the barnacle geese has made a nest close to an arctic skua nest. They have an impressive defence against us visiting. Frigg Speelman walked in front of me and I made this video. Arctic skuas feed on vomiting kittiwakes. They chase them along until they drop their pre-digested food and eat on this.
