  3. Hello all,

    The great skua is an aggressive pirate of the seas, deliberately harrassing birds as large as gannets to steal a free meal. It also readily kills and eats smaller birds such as puffins. These birds migrate to the northernmost isles of the UK from their wintering grounds off the coasts of Spain and Africa. Thanks a lot.....
