Also late this afternoon, close to sunset, very hazy ...

There was a group of 45-50 smallish dumpy seabirds about a kilometer off
the beach. They would head in one direction, then wheel around and head in
the other. They did this for a few turns then headed westwards. Flight
usually began with fast wingbeats followed by short glides very low over
water. Some birds landed briefly. White contrasting with darker grey, but I
couldn't pick up any clearer markings. Fairy Prion? Or too hard to call?
