Another storm has passed and new gulls have come in. Today I saw 8 iceland gulls from the kitchen window. The is one more than the previous record. I really like looking out the window for the moment!
Most of the iceland gulls were new compared to earlier this week. There was a new adult bird with a lot of brown colour to the head and chest and there was a new first winter with some damage to the left wing.
But the most interesting bird was a 3rd winter, with some indication of kumlieni. It is not a classic 3rd winter kumlieni, but at least three different features seem to point towards kumlieni:
1) There are some dark markings on the primaries.
2) There is still signs of a dark tail-band.
3) The iris is still rather dark.
But well, have a look at the pics and make up your own minds.
