A juvenile and adult Great Skua with a juvenile Sabine’s Gull feeding on a young dead auk that the Bonxies killed at the Bridges of Ross and up to six Bonxies were recorded feeding on this bird at one point. If you look closely you can see that the adult bird on the right hand side is wearing a metal ring on it’s right leg. John N Murphy
