The majority of 3CY michahellis have yellow legs, but this one is pinkish. Pink legs persist for much longer in the Atlantic populations of Iberian Yellow-legged Gulls. This bird also looks relatively cute and slim. So is it an odd female Mediterranean-type bird, or from the Atlantic coast of Iberia?
