Petrels vs Skuas

Just spotted this news on the BBC after listening to an item on the radio last night.

It seems that Leach's storm-petrel is under threat by a rapid increase in Great Skuas.

Heard from a mate who's mate studied Skua's on Shetland that Bonxies had learned to target Leach's Petrel at night as they left and entered their burrows

Birding's a drug, you bird for the adrenalin rush of a rarity, you find one, then you need your next fix.
