Gallery: cachinnans 2cy july-december
Species: larus cachinnans

same bird as in 1199, 1200 and 1202.

primary moult: longest replaced primary is p8! this is more advanced than most birds at mid august.
note how much better the bird looks for cachinnans in this more relaxed position - with its high breast bend, upright stance and head looks much smaller now!
