Near adult or adult Lesser black-backed gull (L. fuscus), 09-01-11. This individual has dark eyes. Maybe this is a rest of immaturity, as the bill has also some dark tracks and the legs are pink. It is not obvious if the wing coverts also show immaturity, but there is a lot of white in primarues. Maybe this is just an odd bird.
2 w. Cantabric Yellow-legged gull (L. michahellis lusitanius). 08-01-11. This is one of the few records (the 4rth) of Yellow legged gulls of Cantabric origin in the Mediterranean. Since field identification is not possible, the rings are necessary to ensure its origin. Picture and record by Raül Aymí.
