Pilling Pom

For the past few days there has been a juvenile pomarine skua on the salt marsh at Cocker's Dyke, Pilling. It's been feeding on carcasses of ducks and gulls, and it allowed quite close approach. It was holding its left wing as if it was damaged but it was able to fly and looked quite powerful when in flight. Apparently the wing looked ok on Wednesday, so perhaps something has happened to it since then. Ironically pom skua was another species I didn't see last year, following last weeks harlequin.
