Yellow-legged Gull michahellis 1CY, October 24 2002, Etaples, NW France.

1CY michahellis with many wing-coverts, the upper tertials and all the scapulars included in the partial moult this autumn. Note the pale base of the bill, the completely moulted head, breast and belly, the pinkish legs and the extensive dark centres in the tertials, all typical characteristics for 1CY michahellis.
