1cy gull from Denmark

Post by RSNaarhus » Mon Oct 28, 2013 11:20 pm


I would like some responses to this gull that I saw at Løkken in the northern part of Jutland, Denmark on the 11th of October.

I was thinking 1cy michahellis but the bird might better fit an argentatus x cachinnans ?

Comments on the ID are very welcome.

Best wishes, Rune Sø Neergaard

Quite heavy underwing markings, would apparently not exclude cachinnans:

I can see Rune´s bird as a cachinnans...

hi rune,

yes, i agree, the whole bird looks good for cachinnans to me as well. quite a darkish one but with that typical tail and inner wing it is allowed to show a marked underwing and striation on head.
