Yellow-legged Gull michahellis sub-adult 701H March 18 2013, Jakuševec landfill, Zagreb, Croatia. Picture: ringing team Luka Jurinovic.

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

Orange 701H, ringed on March 18 2013 at Jakuševec landfill, Zagreb, Croatia. Adult looking bird, but when the wing is spread, obvious immature markings in primary coverts. Could be 4CY but extremely difficult to fully exclude retraded 5CY, especially with such large mirrors; hence safely labeled 'sub-adult'.
