Hi Mike, I'd say that a good deal of our birds come from the Kermadecs,
I have written some notes on Kermadec in our 2012 annual report due out
soon. As far as I'm aware Kermadecs are hybridising on Round Island with
the Trinidade Petrels, not aware of Herald Petrels being there. Cheers -

See below for the seemingly miraculous movements of one of the Kermadec
Petrels that breeds on Round Island in the western Indian Ocean sent to
me by John Darnell from the WA Museum. So Paul, your Southport birds
don't necessarily come from Lord Howe!
Some of you may not be aware that Kermadec Petrels as well as Trinidade
Petrels breed on Round Island. I'm not sure re the status of Herald
Petrel there.
