Pale and faded,
A cracking summer plumaged med gull was the first I have seen here this winter at Moore. The same juv Glaucous gull and juv Iceland gull that have been present recently were showing well.

Some of the herring gulls made me look twice today with thier pale edged primaries and pale plumage.

This was a pale smallish herring gull with kumliens type primaries.

I wondered if this 2nd winter had some glaucous in it with its pink based bill and short primary projection.
