Belted Kingfisher male flying past Cabrillo Tide Pools

I photographed a male Belted Kingfisher flying south along the Cabrillo National Monument coast near the main tide pools parking area.
It doesn't get reported often in Point Loma. Was it likely just taking an odd route south, or was this just a rarely noticed transition from the river channel area to the South Bay? It was pretty quick, so if I hadn't photographed it I would have not been confident of the sighting.
