3cy Caspian gull Øra, 12th of january
This nice 3cy Caspian gull was present for a few minutes at Øra today. Unfortunately it was only seen inside a semi-open building for sorting waste, so all pictures were taken through dense netting. Inevitably, a bulldozer soon made it disappear..It is not very advanced to be a caspian gull with just a few median coverts and no tertials renewed. Many 3cy herring gulls are in a similar state of moult at this time of year.
