  At last, having been scoping the sea daily from my lounge during this stormy period, something to report.
   Around midday once again I was going through the numerous Black-headed Gulls which were just off South Beach, Aberystwyth when a dark type Arctic Skua appeared, almost filling my scope view. The Gulls scattered and the Skua headed towards the castle and was lost to view behind the life-boat station.
