Subantarctic Skua (Brown Skua) Catharacta antarctica

Pelagic off Walvis Bay, Namibia

Wednesday 25th April 2007

  Noticed a couple of these Skuas following a trawler and so pedal to the metal we followed in our wee boat. Quite approachable birds.

  Photos taken with a Canon EOS 30D and a Canon 75-300mm Lens.
