Err, this is a Great White Pelican!  Note the all balck primaries and secondaries and the black patch on the primary coverts.

Do you mean it is not a Dalmatian Pelican and it should be a Great White Pelican?

Are you sure Paul?

Surely the underwing is predominantly pale.

Happy to be shown to be wrong!

I think White Pelican should have obvious pink bare face...?

Yep, my mistake, it clearly has pale undewing on other photos.  Sorry!
