Arctic Skua verses Redwing

A couple of Saturdays ago I saw a Arctic Skua attacking a Redwing just the east side of the Longstone Lighthouse. You will have to excuse my pictures as I was a bit to far away, overcast and it all happened very quickly, but you can the action as it happens.














The Redwing escaped, but I don't know it survived.

Your photos tell part of a great story. Here, I am more likely to catch the drama of smaller birds attcking the hawks and crows. I know they are trying to thwart the predator birds from thinking about an attack on the smaller one's nest.
