and Arctic Skua (90% sure as was very dark almost swift like in agility, long tail feathers, about the size of a bhg) Not good enough for a record but I thought folks might be able to help with id) second person thought Arctic too.

here two crops of disappearing bird's tail feathers. Even at my most bold I would not suggest they help much!
[www.youtube.com] really confirms dark morph AS. It was hawking the Oystercatchers, and others, on the stone breakwater by the paddling pool Bare. The whole assemblage of roosting birds were put up, but they soon settled.
