cachinnans plumages

Larus cachinnans 3CY KE95 January 06 2008, Woerth, Niederoesterreich, Austria. Picture: Wolfgang Schweighofer.

Ringing data pending, probably ringed as pullus red KE95 in 2006 at Gatovo - Minsk region, Belarus.

Probably pure cachinnans, almost completely grey saddle and new wing-coverts replaced in partial autumn moult now quite adult-like, grey: most of MC, single LC, innermost GC and upper TT replaced again.
