Possible Kumlien's Gull (Larus [glaucoides] kumlieni), 4cy, 5.2.2012, Hanstholm Harbour

Case: 2013-171
Date: 2012-01-11 -(02-19)
Site: Hanstholm Harbour, Denmark
Observer: Kent Olsen, *Henrik Haaning Nielsen, John Kyed, Martin Gottschling m.fl.

This is the sixth of eight white-winged gulls found in the Hanstholm Harbour area in just one day, with six Kumlien's /Iceland Gull-types and one 2cy and one 3cy Glaucous Gull.

It has been identified as a Kumlien's Gull due to the faint dark pigmentation along the very tip of the outer primaries. There are also these eight great photos of the same individual which can be recognised by its broken left wing p10: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven and eight.

All the photos below are taken by Martin Gottschling
