Herring Gull Larus argentatus

Third calendar-year, June 2022


3cy (2S) Herring Gull, WMids, June 2022

A. R. Dean

Third calendar-year (second summer) Herring Gull. Note the clean grey mantle and scapulars creating a saddle, contrasting with the older and generally brown-variegated wing-coverts and tertials.
Primaries worn and bleached to a brown hue. The bill shows extensive yellow but retains some black towards the tip. Iris becoming pale.
