From Wikipedia: "The breeding season for grey-faced petrels starts in winter, with egg-laying commencing in late June.[ <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grey-faced_petrel#cite_note-Ibis1976-6>

My earlier comment about this being well into the Austral spring is not relevant, but it is close to winter, when the bird might be searching for a nesting opportunity.
