1CY Yellow-legged Gull – 20140721

They have been observed in the Netherlands for a few weeks now: 1st-calendar year Yellow-legged Gulls Larus michahellis in juvenile plumage, and I was eager to come across one myself.

Photos were taken at Stellendam harbour, the Netherlands, 21 July 2014 (same individual).
