Photo of the Week

The Arctic skua Stercorarius pasasiticus breeds in Britain in loose colonies on the windswept moors of Orkney, Shetland and the Hebrides, and a small number on mainland Scotland. The sleek body and long tapered wings make the Arctic skua an agile and powerful flyer. These aggressive skuas ruthlessly chase and harass other seabirds such as terns, gulls or auks into disgorging any recently caught fish, a behaviour known as kleptoparasitism. Nests are built on the ground, often close to a mound or rock which the bird uses as a lookout to violently defend against all intruders including sheep, cattle and people!
