1cy Yellow-legged Gull / Larus michahellis, Westkapelle - sea dike (The Netherlands) on 27 August 2009
Note the very typical pattern and coloring of the coverts and tertials. A few scapulars have been replaced by second generation feathers which show a very dark (double) anchor pattern contrasting with the white buffish base.

Note the typical tail pattern with a small black tapering tail-band. The upper-tail coverts are well dark brown marked.
