Larus cachinnans 1CY PLG DN-09082 November 18 2000, Deponie Coerde - Münster, Germany (52.00.39N 07.38.48E). Picture: Armin Deutsch.

Ringed as pullus on May 13 2000 at Tarnow-Klikowa, Poland (50°02' N, 20°58' E).

By that time ringed as pullus Larus argentatus, now of course considered Larus cachinnans. Note bill shape, tertial pattern, GC pattern, replaced coverts, simple pattern on scapulars and pale underwing. Bird with slightly short legs.
