Adult. Male. Quite a few birds winter in the bay, but only on foggy days like today do they accidentally approach the coast as seen here. Only got this rear-end shot because I was biking along the dike, and only saw the bird when it passed me. The camera was in the bag in my front carrier, why I had to stop, pull the camera out, turn it on and extend the lens and point and focus.

Adult. Male. Basic plumage. Unmistakable and beautiful.
Today it was the windy conditions rather than fog that made the birds approach land.
