CASPIAN GULL Larus cachinnans


Split from Herring Gull a while ago, it turns out that this is not an uncommon species in Britain, many birds disperse here from Eastern Europe, especially Poland, after breeding. Unlike the other common "ex-herring gull" there are currently no breeding records in the UK, but birds can be very similar to Herring or Yellow-legged unless they are classic examples, there are also undoubtedly hybrids throughout Europe.
