This bird pushes the limits of what a 1st winter Caspian Gull may look like, although no one has challenged it, it may be misidentified. This is another asymmetric bird with more typical greater coverts on the right side than on the left. The long legs were very spindly when viewed from the rear. The head looks duller than in life due to having to push to ASA 400 at 1/30 sec and 1/3rd of a stop under exposure.
