 HG, adult male with YLG:

Two cases of HGs the left is the same individual with above large male. The right is really small, female:

And finally two pics of a 1st winter, most probably Armenian:

Wintering Gulls just arrived in harbour! 11 Oct 2012.

Caspian, Baltic, LBBG, Heuglin's and most probably Armenian are among them !
Today the birds were very nerved and it was difficult to take good pictures but i got a few!

A difficult gull (a) looks as CG but with lot of black underwing... in front of a Heuglin's:
 Another problematic one (b) comparing with YLG looks a bit more dark. Steppe or something else?:
 The (b) Gull alone, probably subadult:
 Larus heuglini:
 the (b) Gull with a most probably 1st w YLG:
 The (a) Gull:
 A 1st w (YLG I suppose) with a stick in mouth...
 Two Gulls, 1st w and 2nd w that I think are both Armenian Gulls:
 The 1st w Armenian like:
 The (a) Gull with heuglini and michahellis:

The 2nd w most probably Armenian Gull with an adult YLG.
 Heuglin's with a bird that I need to age and more! CG or YLG? :
 These 4 birds all different taxa? left the (b) possible Steppe, then 2nd w Armenian, CG and HG:
 The 2nd w Armenian:

A good start of winter season!
