Just pondering out loud here - I don't mind sticking my neck out in true anserine fashion in the interests of provoking speculation. But I wonder what the chances are that the GHL's disorientation is some way actually connected with its apparently diseased foot. Could an infection contribute to a 'brain scramble'? I know I've felt/thought some pretty odd things under the influence of a fever. (Maybe including this suggestion.) We certainly don't know why the occasional 'reverse migration', as discussed by Milburn, occurs.

OK, back in my box now....
