Iceland Gull (Larus glaucoides), 5cy+, 5.2.2012, Hirtshals Harbour #2

This is considered to be an Iceland Gull though this is not to say that it is not a pale-winged Kumlien's Gull. It has without doubt some rather dark peppered eyes.

There were three almost identical near-adult Iceland Gulls in the harbour. Luckily they were all seen at the same time late in the afternoon; however, if you look careful and compare with this and this you will also see that there are slight differences in the extent of their winter shawl.

Here behind one another Iceland Gulls.
