    I had a child. Got about half, but when looking at the answers was continually clapping my hand to my forehead: "Skua! How could I forget skuas?"

    Will get back into the groove one of these days and meanwhile thank you for a v. entertaining diary :)

      They kept wanting "erne" for marine bird or marine predator. Then, one day, skua! Honestly... ;)

        because of my son's love of nature videos - one of the first ones he had, about the Antarctic, showed a skua going after a penguin chick. Unpleasant but also unforgettable!
