1cy Yellow-legged Gull – 20131009

Numbers of first-calendar year Yellow-legged Gulls Larus michahellis have dropped in my home town after the influx in August, but every now and again single individuals can still be seen.

Today’s bird showed pale, washed-out juvenile wing coverts which made the second-generation feathers stand out even more.
