Yellow-legged Gull michahellis 1CY HES M.008547 August 08 2008, Westkapelle, The Netherlands. Picture: Ies Meulmeester.

Ringed michahellis from Switzerland: Fanel (46.58.58N, 007.02.11E), Switzerland, ringed on 15 May 2008.

Some upper scapulars are recently replaced by second generation feathers. Note the typical pattern and coloring of the tertials which is quite a good feature of juvenile michahellis.
