At around 4:20pm a pair led their nearly full-grown young onto the Darlington beach, where the family fed in the wet sand as the waves washed over.

The 3 on Darlington Beach in the morning. At around 4:20pm, 1 seen feeding in the wet sand not far from the Chestnut Teals. A few people walked by on the beach but the birds & the people ignored each other.

At around 4:35pm 2 Pac. Gulls landed on the beach, 1 carrying a fish in its beak. It dropped the still-live fish at the edge of the breaking waves & started poking at the fish with its beak, then eating the fish's flesh once a hole was made in the fish. The other bird just stood nearby & didn't try to steal or eat the fish.
