Adult (or likely 3rd winter given dusky gray on especially the primary coverts) and 1st winter. Adult first noted when landing in water a few 100 m off the coast, north of Cape Point. Later resting in gull flock on Cape Point, from where it flew north to forage in the surf, where I then also noted a 1st winter bird, the latter presumably the same that was reported by Brian Patteson in the morning.
