Shoalstone, Brixham

Seawatch from Shoalstone shelter late afternoon, extremely windy - southerly storm force 10 gusting more!. A few Great Northern Divers sheltering, out to sea a steady passage of Fulmars, with at least one 'dark' phase, many Kittiwakes getting forced further into Torbay with Gannets. At 16:35 an adult (winter) Pomarine Skua sheared into view and sat off Shoalstone, it then headed towards the breakwater and harried Kittiwakes, at times over the outer harbour, close enough for photos, but no camera! Last seen heading further into Torbay towards Elberry / Broadsands.
