...for the tide to turn, and all the other birds to start hunting, to feed their chicks. Then this Great Skua will attack the birds until they drop their catch, and it then grabs the falling 'whatever' for itself!
It is quite often sitting on the moor, a 100 yards or so from the cliff tops, laying in wait.
It has only stood up now I have got fairly close to it.
Skuas can be quite nasty birds when they want to be!
