Baltic Gull (or something similar) in the Po Delta ?





This gull in juvenile plumage was photographed in the Goro fishing harbour, Po Delta, NE Italy, on 17 August 2004. It was standing being smaller and paler than the other juvenile gulls present there, which were all Yellow-legged Gull Larus michahellis. The fourth picture shows at left a first summer moulting to second winter Yellow-legged Gull ringed in Italy as chick, and at right the mystery gull.
Is it simply a small and pale Yellow-legged Gull or something other ?

Tuscany is a majestic, enchanting place. Where else can you drink wine relaxing in the vineyard it was grown, sleep in historic villas, and learn to cook from master chefs. Take a look at some of my photos at Enjoy!
