Filey, 31 from '13 - #12

Seawatching was an aspect of birding I was particularly excited about when we decided to move to Filey last year, and I've done more of it in these last eighteen months than in the rest of my birding life combined. Within that context, there's no competing with Skuas, and I've been lucky enough to experience big movements, and all four species, at close range. None are more accommodating than Arctic Skuas however, as these shots of fly-bys from this year testify.
