18/01/2007: A Gulling Day with Christos Vlachos

On January 18, 2007 Christos arrived early morning to Crete to take some photos of Armenian Gulls in Irakleion harbour. Armenian were not in his gallery as it is a rarity in mainland Greece. Such a good luck! At least 3 adult Armenians where there! But also many other large gulls! We both have the oppurtunity to watch, and Christos to take pictures of every single gull of few hundrends resting in the east part of the port. Some of them are really interesting as the following pictures shown. ID problems still remain for some individuals and a probable "first" for Crete and Greece gull species (or subspecies), the Steppe Gull is including in Christos excellent photos!
