G'day Stephen,

An interesting hypothesis, but I wonder at the combined probabilities of
first off a Baltic/Heuglin's finishing up in SA and secondly hybridizing
with a Kelp/Cape Gull then finally the offspring finding its way to Broome
and being seen by a birder. They are probably rather long odds I would

Cheers Jeff.
