Continuing bird for this area. Juvenile. Flew north from tip and then west toward marsh. Would flap a few times then soar, flap then soar, and so on

- Very long legs trailing the bird at all times, ruling out pelican
- contrast between head and body, where head was the darker part (light grey compared to white)
- dark/black flight feathers contrasting against light/white coverts
- wing beats slightly faster than that of GBHE
