CommentI don't think there are any shots of the race opthamicus in the library, the fleshy eye ring is so much larger than nominate race. The bird is seen amid flowering 'pig face' making for a different than usual seaside setting, there is the spray from breaking wave in the far background. Both races occur in this area and they do interbreed so there is no knowing if this is a 'full blood' or a hybrid with strong opthalmicus features.
