George Swann is currently photographing a large 'black-backed' gull at the 
Broome rubbish tip. Council workers spotted the bird yesterday morning but then 
it went AWOL but returned today. It is an adult with white head and tail and 
orange spot on [yellow] bill. It is dark grey rather than black above and has a 
broad white trailing edge to wing so could be a Kelp Gull. However, at this 
stage other species are not ruled out. Should receive photos later tonight.
