Audouin's Gull (Ichtyaetus audouinii) 5cy, AJ2S, 28/06/2008, Ischia, Italy. Pictures by Vincenzo Cavaliere.

AJ2S, ringed Spain, probably in 2004. Photographed as adult on 28/06/2008, in the colony at Ischia (Italy). Dark primaries (brownish wash, white tips hardly visible) and red bill tip (no yellow) would suggest a 3rd summer, rather thant 4th summer.
