Juvenile Yellow-legged Gull at Princes Park
First noticed by virtue of its tertials being virtually solidly brown with narrow white fringes not reaching the feather bases, whilst not the whitest-headed or masked individual, it soon impressed displaying its subtle suite of characters. Most pleasing were a number of second generation scapulars including a couple of obvious anchor-marked ones - Herring and Lesser Black-backed Gulls don't commence replacing their scapulars until September. Also note its hefty blunt-tipped black bill, white nose-band, whitish ground colour to its underparts, wholly dark-centred outer greater coverts and indistinct inner-primary window, long primary projection, pale lower back and eye-catching tail pattern.
