(Trevor's RARE BIRD NEWS this evening has a very interesting sentence in it. I will load the pic of this hybrid bird as soon as I receive it. Note the pale eye (as in Cape Gannet) and the short gular stripe (as in Australian Gannet).) - Ed.
We quote: 'Also of interest, it was confirmed this morning that there are now 2 AUSTALASIAN GANNETS on Malgas Island in Saldahna Bay as well as a hybrid Cape X Australasian Gannet!'
