Birdline Report - An all-dark juvenile Giant-Petrel passed by during a seawatch off Point Addis yesterday. Strong southerlies pushing birds quite close to shore. Binocular views showed no colour contrast to bill tip. Photos in the strong wind proved very tricky, my best attempt attached which suggests lighter bill tip; good for SGP. Other birders present (name unknown?) had better photos which will be good for positive photo ID.
