Many Larus fuscus & heuglini this year!

LATE NOVEMBER 2011 - HERAKLEION HARBOUR.
Maybe more than 50 birds on the late November in Heraklion harbour are fuscus type birds. LBBG intermedius, BG fuscus and HG heuglini are more than any other year of the last 10. Mainly Heuglins and many young birds look also this type of fuscus.
And always some birds are difficult to identificate like this "heuglini or barabensis":

Armenian present also, left with YLG on the right:
Heuglin's are so great:
This bird made me a bit puzzling before decide to identificate as Caspian:
But this one remains unidentificated...:
Next pic shows a ringed young gull on left. Probable numbers I read are: xE-x7x428
(x=R, x=1, x=5), hope to another better look. The right one possibly Armenian:
YLG are always beautiful:
Possible HG, 1st winter:
Oily Mediteranean:
And more to show...
