Larus cachinnans hybrid 4CY-7CY 81P1 December 2009 - November 2012, Roermond, the Netherlands.
Green 81P1 and metal DN13685. Bird ringed as pullus on May 20 2006 at Wisla Wloclawek Tama, Poland. This is a mixed colony of argentatus and cachinnans. On all pictures there is a strong feeling argentatus is at least one of the parents, and this is confirmed from Poland. Father not known, mother argentatus.

Head shape and extensive steaking on head reminiscent of Herring Gull.

At first glance, maybe more like Herring Gull than Caspian Gull. Especially streaking on head concentrated around and behind the eye.
