Yellow-legged Gull michahellis 2CY, April 19 2002, Etaples, NW France (50.42N,1.34E).

In this individual, all rectrices and remiges are still juvenile, and it has all the tertials juvenile as well. Three lesser coverts and median coverts #3-8 were replaced in the post-juvenile moult. Now, a few months later, the white fringes on the tips are worn away.
