    2 #eggs, I think- one bottom left, one just below centre. Dramatic image!

    Good on you gardenmaeve I got the middle egg but didn't see the one on the left!! Skua is a very bold isn't it......

    Yes- and I'm always amazed how big skuas are compared to the penguins.

    A friend of mine refers to them as scavengers and they are one of the few birds that she absolutely hates!!

    Scavengers are valuable too- yet I can understand how some would find them distasteful.

    Agree ... just because they are valuable doesn't necessarily mean we have to like them!! 😃

    I take it that any new zooniverse project called 'SkuaWatch' might not fare too well amongst us then? 😉

    Depends ... if it was proven that they were an imported noxious bird that needed eradication or culling (like rubber vine) .. I'd be in 😃

    I find the skuas interesting.
