Great Skua

A Great Skua had been recently seen on Swansea's west pier, so I popped over about 6.30 p.m. on Sunday to see if it was still there. It was, and tame enough to allow a few photos, although the dim light meant I had to crank the ISO right up, so quality is not as good as it could have been.
Some pictures:-
The Mumbles can be seen faintly in the background here:
