Pomarine, Arctic & Bonxie

A few more from last Saturday at Barna. Interesting to see the variation amongst just three sub-adult type Arctic and Pom Skuas photographed. Some with noticeable barring on the head, neck, breast, underparts and undertail coverts and some with white barring to the underwing.
Only the one Bonxie which had lovely warm uniform orange underparts and a dark head.
