1cy Caspian Gull / Larus cachinnans, Westkapelle - sea dike (The Netherlands) on 1 October 2009
Ringcode: DN.25914, there is no ring data of this bird.
This ringed 1cy Caspian Gull from Poland was rousting in the same group as this classic 1cy Caspian Gull, but note the differences. This one is a typical example from a average 1cy cachinnans from Poland. Note the more prominent barring on the greater coverts, the clearer dark anchors and markings on the scapulars, the dark shins and more fine dark streaking on the head and the V-shape markings on the upper-tail coverts. The inner primary pattern is also a bit atypical because the innner webs are not complete pale and the tips of the inner webs are evenly dark as the outer webs.
