Identification of 1st winter large white-headache gull


Oh no! Its a snouty, pale under-winged, venetian-blind upper-winged first-winter large white-headed gull... Maybe some Caspian Gull genes in there but if so it does not quite look like what it should look like. Best then to ignore the cachinnans-like coverts and tertials and put it down as a weird argentatus Herring Gull. After all - every gull at Seafield is a Herring!

Never did see the tail...
