Larus cachinnans 3CY, January 09 2011, Rødvig Havn, Sjælland, Denmark. Picture: Klaus Malling Olsen.

Classic 2W bird now, with snow white underparts and head. Several coverts and upper tertials were replaced again in the partial autumn moult, now looking adult-like grey. Much black in 2nd gen tail.
