Species: larus cachinnans

same group of resting caspians - in the centre, slightly hidden a 2cy in "zebra look" - created by mostly 2nd gen. coverts and tertials!
another 2cy (the right hand bird) with mostly juvenile pale brown coverts.
note the large male 3cy, leftmost bird.
many of the accompanying adults had bright yellow legs and mantle looked darkish reminding of barabensis but it might just have been the poor light.
