cachinnans plumages

Larus cachinnans hybrid 3CY 3?8P December 03 2009, Deponie Pohlsche Heide - Minden, Germany (52°23'05N, 08°46'45E). Picture: Armin Deutsch.

Green ring, but code not completely read (seemed to be 378P, but these high 300P's were all used in 2008, so must have been in low 300's, e.g. 348P). Probably been ringed as pullus in May 2007 in central Poland. Eye-catching bird, showing many intermediate features and in general could be labeled as half-half cachinnans x argentatus.
