Yellow-legged Gull michahellis 2CY 45BH January 22 2012, Jakuševec landfill, Zagreb, Croatia. Picture: ringing team Luka Jurinovic.

Ringed michahellis from Croatia, codes may be used for winter trapping on landfill near Zagreb, hence no provenance on origin or exact age.

Assumed michahellis, note the large amount of replaced inner wing-coverts. Also few odd features: very streaked head, large lozenges on P2-P4, really pale innerwebs up to P7, fine vermivulation on innerwebs of P2-P4.

Here 2CY male cachinnans from the same date: 47BH.
