1CY Yellow-legged Gull Helvetia M018648 – 20140726

Today I went out looking for first-calendar year Caspian Gulls and Yellow-legged Gulls in my home town of Leiden, the Netherlands.

They have been reported at various locations throughout the country recently and I expected them to show up here any day now.

There were no Caspian Gulls present yet, but I was rewarded with a Yellow-legged Gull that was fitted with a metal ring from Switzerland.

All photos were taken on 26 July 2014.
