Caspian Gull L. cachinnans
Two adults, photographed by Rik Winters.
Note again the typical posture of a cachinnans with the high-held breast, small head, slender bill, long tibia and a clear hint of an attenuated rear end.
Harselaar (Gelderland), the Netherlands. 2 January 2004.
Photographed later in the year, this bird shows a much more yellow bill.
