Larus fuscus fuscus 5-6cy J475 2010-2011, Ashdod, Israel. Pictures Amir Ben Dov.

J475 was ringed on 26 July 2006 at Maritholman Sørvest, Nordhorsvær, Sømna, Nordland, in northern Norway (65°19'44"N 011°37'49"E).

Note head streaking, next to COPE (13+cy) from Finland.

P10 seems to fall short, but this may an optical illusion. On the other hand, this is a late moulting individual as the images of next year show. Note extensive head streaking, not seen in this extent in other ringed adult fuscus from this date.

Complete moult on the wintering grounds almost finished: P7 fully grown, probably only P10 still old. Note black on billl in this 6cy bird.
