Herring Gull (argentatus & argenteus)

(last update: February 11, 2013)

Herring Gull (argentatus) JN732 3CY, May 14 2013, Sandøya, Norway. Picture: Ingar Støyle Bringsvor.

Bird ringed as 1CY, ringed on October 02 2011 in a park in Bergen. This year, it was still present in the park in Bergen on April 23 2013, but early May it moved north. Now at the island Sandøya, and could well be a bird from further north.

No grey feathers. Obviously missing outer MC, indication that the complete moult has started in this bird (so will show missing inner primaries in flight).
