Iceland Gull (glaucoides) 1cy, December 03 2007, Scheveningen, the Netherlands.

Age 1cy December: showing dark bill with pale base, dark iris and juvenile plumage (although few scapulars may be replaced by this time of the year).

Primary category: --

Rather dark 1cy bird. In some images, P10 has moved over P8 in the left wing. P10, from above, lacks a dark outer-web; but such is obvious present on the other primaries. The fresh primaries still show rather obvious sub-terminal chevrons.
