Bara Gulls - an Album

Permalink 05:08:33, Categories: Photographs, General comments  

Taken on the 3rd October 2009 at Busaiteen Maharraq

the album contains a series of 155 images some distant some close mainly of what I assume to be Steppe Gulls but there are one or two that could well be Caspian or Baltic Gulls. The odd tern is included

Early gulls - all seem to be Barabensis Steppe Gull with just a few exceptions however if you see one I have missed don't be surprised but let me know.

Heuglini sometimes called Baltic Gull (I think) but I could be wrong it might be of course Amerimicus, Cachinnans, Barabensis or even Taimyrensis. It certainly is not Fuscus of which I have put a picture for comparison below, however it is closely related to the later - the only help you get - Both pictures taken today
