cachinnans plumages

Dnjepr reservoir Kaniv (49,45,46N 31,27,52E). Pictures from Panoramio (often users with nicknames).

The town of Kaniv, with large scale dam constructions; breeding site for many ringed Caspian Gulls recorded in Europe. This is merely a "ringers effect", as Caspian Gulls are well distributed along the entire Dnjepr river systems and basin, yet birds are ringed at just a few locations.
