Re: LBBG?

Interesting! With this choice I would take heuglini :mrgreen: I haven´t expected that graellsii has such a white head at this time (early January). And I had ruled out graellsii here in Austria. But if the palest birds from northern Norway are graellsii indeed, then it is possible. Heuglini would be...

LBBG?

Hi, today 12 -15 large gulls at Wörth/Austria. Most of them cachinnans, one of them PALC from Poland. Among them also a very dark indiviual. From distance (nearly 100m) I had no doubt that it was an abnormal coloured CG. Especially white head and breast, contrasting well to the boa of dark neck stre...

Hybrid CG x HG

Hello, I had asked a similar question some weeks ago, without any success... But this time - today afternoon at Krems/Austria - the bird had a clipring. Most likely it was a Lithuanian ring. Unfortunately I had technical problems with my digiscoping cam, so the ring was not read. From Lithuania HG, ...

Re: YLG with ring from Slowakia

To come to an end with that BHG: Yesterday I have found it again, very comfortable this time ;)
It was exactly that BHG which I had presumed, at least 10 years old. Would be interesting, where it´s alternative wintergrounds are?

Okay, yesterday I had the first one only some meters in front of me, at the feeding place in Steyr, unfortunately without ring. But I think, at this time many cach´s here ...

It consisted of mainly cachinnans, also few argentatus, heuglini and ‘heuglini x sth‘-type birds (whatever that means :?: ) had been present, I received a few pic´s. PVVS seems to be a small b...
