Sedentary species representing Yellow-legged Gull at Iberian Atlantic coast between Berlangas and Basque Country. In adult plumage upperparts have greytone Kodak 6.5-8.0, slightly darker than michahellis Yellow-legged Gull. Structure: close to michahellis Yellow-legged Gull but slightly more elegant built; some birds similar to argenteus Herring Gull. Square head and looking long-necked, strong bill with obvious gonys angle. Long primary projection gives it some elegance.
