Arctic Skua Chick at Burgi Ayre
Large Skootie Alan (Shetland) chick on the grass beside the boardwalk at Burgi Ayre, Mousa.
"It is a juvenile Arctic Skua (Stercorarius parasiticus), or more accurately a very well chick, as the wings and tail are not full grown and it would not be capable of flight". - Thanks to Mike Pennington.
