Another superb set by Hans!

Notable is of course the fresh juvenile heuglini types and the varable tail pattern as well as structually differences in many of these - strikingly different from suggested barabensis. Further, a well illustrated and noticable primary score in these heuglini types adult like birds.

Yes, beautiful set.
Its dangerous to do a primary score since there are double birds in there.
More-over, are the young birds all heuglini?
On page 5 there is an obvious bird near the water line.

I realise that there are so called double bird in there, but newer the less, a fairly good indication of scores. However, as Theo rightly points out, quite dangerous to do a primary score survey from a rather limited set of gulls images, which is not the intention, mearly indicative. The juvenile on page 5, could you explain further to a blind person Theo ;)
