Yellow-legged Gull michahellis 1CY, October 22 2001, Westkapelle, the Netherlands. 

Sunset creates a warm orange tone, but in the field coverts had the same brown tone as in other michahellis. Note the rather ill-defined 'window' on the inner primaries (created by the paler inner-webs). In argenteus and argentatus this window is much more prominent.
