Great Skua off Ilfracombe.

  Just 200 metres offshore ,a Great Skua flew west off Capstone ,Ilfracombe  On a calm sea.   Rather surprising having spent two hours at Hartland point yesterday in a north westerly gale hoping for a Skua.   Did see plenty of Fulmars and Kittiwakes,6 Gannets and a party of 8 Common Scoter plus a few Auks.Still at least 4 Siskin at Braunton feeding in Alders with Goldfinch.
