Skua drama ! Hamnavoe Bay, Orkney

In Hamnavoe Bay via the ferry crossing (Scrabster, Caithness - Stromness, West Mainland, Orkney) the drama and spectacle unfolded as great skuas Stercorarius skua chased, harassed and bullied the (Northern) gannets Morus bassanus in an attempt to induce the latter into disgorging their crops.
