Larus fuscus (heuglini or fuscus ?)
2nd calendar year
20 June 2006
Kiberg, Finnmark, Norway

The feather appearance of this bird fits a first-summer Heuglin's Gull, while the primary moult progression seems to be in favour of Baltic gull. Is this a first-summer Baltic Gull, or could it be the first Heuglin's Gull for Norway?
