Hi Matthias, left-field suggestion is Black-fronted Tern. I think the white rump and contrasting light and dark around the face would fit.

Picture seems to be gone, but from when I saw it last night, I'd agree with you on Black-fronted Tern.

Hi Matthias, what date did you see the Soft-plumaged Petrels?
