In February 2002 (I think 2002), I went to Broome to see the Kelp Gull. Just before I left, we found a gull near the port with no windows in the wing and a longer more slender bill, I tried to turn it into a Slender-billed Gull, but then Ron Johnstone sent me his paper on Silver Gulls, and other references I looked at convinced me that it was still a Silver Gull. The New Caledonia race has no windows from memory, but whether that would make it to Broome ....
