This gull has the head and bill structure of michahellis. Also the white eye-lids emphasise the michahellis feel. But everyone knows that michahellis is white-headed and a long primary projection - so what about this 2CY bird? The wings look short because it is still growing the outer primaries - it's just an unusually dirty looking mich.
