Kelp Gull (Larus dominicanus)

The following are photographs of a Kelp Gull at Entrance Point near the Broome Port in January 2002.  Kelp Gulls are rare in Western Australia.  This bird was first reported at the port in December 2001 and it stayed until June 2002.  It is suspected that it is the sub species from Madagascar.  More details can be found on another web page.
