A skua special...

This week was dominated by a skua passage of the west coast and on one particular Whalewatch on our way back from seeing two minke whales, a group of eight Long-tailed Skuas flew right over the boat providing exceptional views! Two Arctic's also seen on the trip.

The following day we got a stunning Pomarine heading east down loch sunart. We enjoyed some close flybys as the bird was tackling the strong south westerly. Four species of Skua seen in two days and close views at that :)

Below are a few photos from this weeks Sea Life Surveys trips for you to enjoy. Next week I am away all week on a Shark charter crewing on board the luxurious bold ranger as we go in search of basking sharks, whales, dolphins, seals and any other marine beasties to experience. An island landing on Lunga as well to experience the large colonies of breeding sea birds so with a nice 5 day forecast ahead fingers crossed for an action packed week of hebridean wildlife. Watch this space for my next blog post...
