These 5 birds (of at least 8 2CY's and 3 3CY's present) show a nice range of appearances. The first bird was ringed at the Tour du Valat in the South of France (ring number 740X) and indeed it does look like a typical big Mediterranean michahellis. The last bird (2 pictures), although its worn plumage looks almost indistinguishable from the first 4 birds, I believe is a Caspian Gull, but I will leave it here for comparison purposes.
