Larus argentatus argentatus
First calendar year
27 October 2006
Byparken, Bergen, Hordaland, Norway

This is a rather dark-tailed and dark-rumped individual, but not exeptional for Norwegian Herring Gulls. Note that the outer greater coverts are rather plain, compared to the distinctly marked inner ones, also well within the variation of argentatus.
