New gull book - photos requested!

Post by adriaens » Mon Jan 04, 2021 4:01 am

Dear visitors of this forum,

we are in the final stages of preparing a new identification guide for the gulls of the Western Palearctic.
We are now urgently looking for high quality photographs of specific plumages of various gull taxa.
We would be grateful if you could have a look at the following list and we will show our gratitude by offering a free copy of the book to anyone whose image(s) we decide to include.
If you can help, please send your images at their original size (high resolution, suitable for printing) to gullswp@yahoo.com by 17 January 2021 the latest, preferably by http://www.wetransfer.com (a free online service for sending large files).

Thank you!
