Yellow-legged Gull lusitanius 331M October 09 2010, Galicia, Spain. Pictures: Gabriel Martín..
A 1cy from Galicia, ringing data not received yet. This bird shows a limited number of replaced scapulars, and all wing-coverts and tertials are still juvenile and look relatively fresh.
It's also interesting to see the obvious notched pattern on the greater wing-coverts and the tertials, the neat fringes on the feathers, limited scapular moult and well-streaked head. Tail pattern not easily determined, but at least R4 seems to show much marking on the outer-web. In general, bird somewhat similar to some argentatus.
