    Comments: Short legs, thick long red/black bill, white underparts, black body and upper side of wings. White forehead discernible at distance. Long wings, bouyant flight, ‘barking’ call. Found resting on water’s edge with mixed flock of gulls. Disturbed by walker. Flew past me quite close with barking call to alight on sand further north up beach, approx. 200 m. Walker turned around and again, obliviously, walked towards flock and again disturbed them. They flew south down river back to original resting place. Mostly adult plumage. Four individuals showed sub-adult, perhaps juv. plumage. The number of birds surprised me but I counted it a number of times, including on two fly pasts.
