Yellow-legged Gull michahellis 2CY, August 10 2003, Etaples, NW France.

A barred 2CY michahellis, with the second generation wing-coverts and scapulars showing obvious anchor patterns. P8 is fully grown.
The upper tertial has been shed again and this may be an indication that the partial autumn moult has started.
