Long Tailed Skua!!

A shout went up from my wife at 6.00pm from our living room....what's  that bird being chased by the Terns?

 I grabbed the bins and there heading east towards the 'Mulbery' in the bay was the much reported Long Tailed Skua being mobbed by several terns. It headed towards Butlins and then did a 180 degree turn and landed on the sea affording reasonable 'scope views. By the time I had got the camera set up (just in case it came within range) it headed back towards Church Norton and was reported on Bird Guides shortly afterwards.
Hopefully it will be back but not a bad tick from our bungalow!
