Observations

  1. Number observed: 1

    Comments: Juv seen when first arrived. V close to beach (partly hidden by veg - I was sitting in the car). Immediately looked a little smaller than a Gannet and very slim with quite a long tail. Upper parts uniform chocolate brown lacking any grey tones or pale rump. Underparts - solid brown breast and paler brown belly extending up Centre of wing. Arced up and over end of pier. Later observation of close Gannets confirmed smaller size with less bulk, stiffer and faster wing beats, different color patterns. Went south, immediately tried Boynton Beach - no joy.
