Larus fuscus fuscus 1cy (juvenile) CCVJ August 06-12 2002, Tampere, Finland (61.33N 24.59E).

A juvenile fuscus by early August, ringed in Finland CCVJ, present at the Tampere dump until at least August 12 2002. This bird and the individual from the same nest, CCUR, were still begging at the parent at the dump. This bird has the fringes of the scapulars very fresh. Note the medium dark brown centres of the scapulars and the dark outer greater coverts. The fringes are rather pale, almost white lacking a buffish or yellowish hue. The fresh primaries are all dark towards the tip, without obvious pale crescents as can be seen in most argentatus juveniles.

CCVJ, ringed as pullus at Lammi (61.25N 24.87E) on July 08 2002. Hand when ringed: 250 mm. After September 12 2002, CCVJ wasn't seen again at Tampere dump and may have started migration from then on.
