30CY European Herring Gull Green FAMA – 20150919

Images of 29-year old European Herring Gull Larus argentatus argenteus, ringed as Green FAMA.

Now nearing the end of September, the head is almost in full winter plumage and the bald spot on the right side is starting to cover up nicely. The primary moult is progressing as well albeit slightly slower compared to previous years. Almost all greater coverts have been dropped.
