Larus cachinnans 1CY PDXX July 09 2010, Deponie Pohlsche Heide - Minden, Germany (52°23'05N, 08°46'45E). Picture: Armin Deutsch.

Yellow PDXX and metal (PLG) DN18760, ringed as pullus on May 27 2010 at Kozielno, Paczkow, S-SW Poland, (50°29' N,  16°58' E).

Recoveries:
PDXX 27-5-2010 ZB. Kozielno, Paczkow 50°29' N 16°58' E
PDXX 9-7-2010 Deponie Pohlsche Heide 52°23' N 08°46' E

In this area are mixed breeding colonies (near Katowice), with far most birds breeding here are cachinnans, but in this area also records of very few michahellis from the south (e.g. ringed female from Italy) and argentatus from eastern Germany are possible (see PDF). PDXX is classic cachinnans.

Early leaving the colony, still in juvenile plumage.
