Title: Catharacta skua
Item Name: Birds


Stuffed Great Skua (Catharacta skua): brown with lighter brown chest, dark brown bill and feet. The skua's main breeding ground is in the Shetland Isles, though it can also be found in the Hebrides, the Orkneys and the NW tip of mainland Scotland. It mainly visits this country between April and September and occasionally in the winter. The Skua has a reputation as a bully - stealing food from other birds and ferociously driving off any intruders in its breeding area.
