While waiting for the gull roost to build this evening off three Beaches headland I picked out a Manx Shearwater circling around the bay, 11 Sandwich Tern and a pale phase Arctic Skua so close in I lost it below the cliffs in front of me as it harassed the terns. The skua regularly settled on the sea for a while before going back in for another go at the terns, it was still present sat on the sea at dusk.
