While we were on our way to a valley near Gjógv, we stumbled upon a lot of 'Kjógvi' (skuas).

On this shot you see an Arctic Skua, seeming to be on watch. The beak seems somewhat pointy because of the angle, but I prefer this shot over the others because it was looking straight at us.

In the valley, not too far from where this photo was taken, there were plenty of Great Skua couples as well. Those tried to chase us away, by all means necessary or so it felt. I didn't think I would get them thát up-close.
