Lyme Bay boat trip from Brixham

Addtional to Nigel's post we had 2 definite arctic skuas and another small skua probably this species, also there were 2 kittiwakes. Fulmars notably absent. Views of great skuas were superb with a flock of 6 on the water and some sitting very close to the boat - a superb end to a great pelagic season.
