Decided on an early morning visit as the tide was due to peak around 10-10.30am, the weather was foul, overcast, wet and eventually the wind settled to a North Westerly. Ideal conditions in which I hoped for some Skua’s.
Needless to say I did not see one, I gave it about 2 hours, Jeff and others were there when I left, they may have seen some.
