Where to see them
This scarce passage migrant is best looked for from seawatching places on the east coast, particularly in September. Another good place to see them is from the Outer Hebrides in May. Onshore winds and rough weather further out to sea are the best conditions for bringing them to our coasts.
When to see them
May to November (particularly August-September).
What they eat
Small mammals, and when at sea, small fish, offal and carrion.
