Re: Russian common gull?

Not much response yet.
I think to see a little grey line on the outerweb of P8 before it reaches to the primary coverts. Therefore it is no 'standard' heinei as in the Adriaens-Gibbins paper. Still, it could be one, but hard to make 100% sure.

Dismissed as AmHeGu on much white spacing on undertail and uppertail coverts and too much streaking on breast and belly (ideally a completely velvety smooth brown texture here).
