?? Not identified to species, but since this species was the only one seen 10 days ago..., this is my best guess

Comments:
Thought this was Southern Giant Petrel at first because of the relatively pale bill, but the Mark Pearman pointed out that the pinky unguis maxilaria made it a Southern GP nevertheless.
