This is an Arctic Skua letting a group of Noble Caledonia’s guests know it’s got chicks nearby. Our Steve Newman took the picture on the Shetland Island of Mousa.
This year the company have several cruises that explore the remoter islands of the British and Irish coast.
Small, expedition vessels are the only way to access some of the more remote destinations in the world which the company include in their itineraries and with their vessels they are able to forsake the wider shipping lanes for channels just a few hundred feet wide. As always their website is joy to explore with it’s photography and fascinating destinations.
