A friend of mine who is not 'on-line' raised the issue of the age of the birds. 
 He considered that the date of the event would
ndicate the birds were part of the non-breeding population.  You mention band 
recoveries - have there been many?   Other than bands,
is there any way to age the birds?

A few more birds washed up this Saturday in Bucks Bay, Carpenter Rocks, SA
