Indeed it may have been ship assisted as many vagrants and our regular
migrants are. But since boats and ships are a natural part of the modern
world and we are never going to know whether or not any migrant we see took
advantage of a rest on a ship, oil-rig, buoy, or human flotsam or jetsam all
are countable. If you have not seen birds sitting on the like you haven't
been to sea enough. Would the 'some' you refer to have us not count birds
sitting on a power-line, a sewage treatment pond or a reservoir? So there is
no such disqualification.

A mischievous rather than wicked thought, I suggest.
