1st w Herring gull (L. argentatus). 17-1-09

1st winter Herring gull (Larus argentatus). 17-1-09. Nice individual with some renewed lesser coverts. In spite renewing coverts it’s not typical in herring gulls, the lack of symmetry in both wings and the sequence makes more reliable a feather renewal due to an accident.
After beeing in Tarragona at least from 6-12-08 to 15-3-09 it was seen in north Catalonia in Solius by Carlos Álvaerz on 22-03-09. You have pictures from his page here:
