Caspian Gull L. cachinnans

Two adults, photographed by Rik Winters.



Wladislawowo harbour. Northern Poland, 17 October 2003. A typical winter adult with a pale-yellow first half of the bill. This particular bird has a rather pale iris.

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.
