    Comments: Bird has been seen spasmodically at this location for a number of days now. Off the south side shoreline in front of the Roberts Bank coalport. A large dirty white bird with an obvious pelican type bill and throat pouch. Bill and pouch were more yellow than orange, perhaps indicating a non-breeding bird. Sat on the water and the black primaries not seen. As the tide fell it floated off to the west.
