Species: larus michahellis

fairly typical autumn birds in terms of head striation, amount and pattern of 2nd gen. coverts. note that inner GC are replaced in both individuals.
these youngsters probably stem from the small local population that started in 1994 at the olt river reservoirs with a few breeding on roof tops in the medieval city of Sibiu. at the reservoirs i have seen one pair breed on protruding logs, about 2 meters above water level.
