I all,
I know it seems to be a classical question but I'd like to get your comments on this bird, photographed in central-western France a few weeks ago.
Thanks a lot for your comments.
Willy

Hi Willy,
this looks like a typical Kumlien's Gull to me.

Thank you very much Peter. That's what I thought but this individual is pale enough to raise questions.
