Yellow-legged Gull michahellis sub-adult, October 01 2001, Le Portel, France (50.43N,01.37E).

Primary P8 fully grown and all old primaries have been shed. Head streaking is concentrated at the ear-coverts and the crown. Note the black markings on the bill. It seems the primaries have been folded wrong and P6 lies beneath P7.
