skua breeds only in Iceland, the Faeroe islands, Norway
and Great Britain. Another name for the great skua is
'bonxie'. There are about 400 bonxies on St Kilda. These
large brown birds will dive-bomb you if go too close
to their nest site and sometimes actually hit you on
the head with their feet! They will also do this to
other sea birds to hassle them to get their food.
