L. fuscus ssp. J824 November 05 2006, Landfill VRSU de Colmenar Viejo, Madrid, Spain. Picture: Delfín González.
Black CR with White code J824 & Ringnumber 4248395
Species: Lesser Black-backed Gull (Larus fuscus) Sex X Age Pull Date 28.07.2006
Place: Lemmingsvær, Tranøy, Troms, NORWAY (69.01.64 N - 16.52.55 E).
Ringed 1cy intermedius at the start of the 1st winter, ringed in N. Norway.
Completely juvenile. Birds from Troms region may turn out to be nominate fuscus, therefore it seems best to leave the subspecies undetermined until adult-like plumage. But clearly following the 'Atlantic flyway' on migartion, as expected for intermedius.
