ground colour of underwing coverts pale but dark tips are bolder than in e.g. these: http://lou.bertalan.de/gulls/m_phi.php?bid=902&grp=michahellis%201cy , thus producing the impression of a darker, stronger marked bird. but note conspicous pale abrs formed by bases of MC and GC (similar to many cachs!).
