Photohunt - Standing

We were very surprised, when walking along a deserted beach near Gairloch, to find this young skua standing very close to us, seemingly unafraid of humans.

With my (lack of) bird identification skills I would have thought it was a pigeon wearing flippers and would have been proud of my new birds and tool use discovery, much more dramatic than all these clever crows poking things with sticks.

He looks like he;s wondering what those strange flightless birds are doing with that odd looking fish! Nice take on the theme.
