If you go to Bornholm in June I think there even might be a chance to see one there. At the Southern Baltic coast regularly there are a few summering birds, some in breeding plumage. At some places...

One of those rather light-bellied, little marked flammea for me. I'd say they are different birds, note the different intensity of streaking on flanks. There are so many of these pale Redpolls in...

The black 'headphones' and dark leading edge to the wing are giveaways: White-winged Terns. Most similar to Black Tern but this species would show a narrow dark wedge to breast sides and no contrast...

Or a female Spanish Sparrow? I'm curious, is there a way to tell them apart? I always thought impossible?

Still a Caspian Gull ;)... for me in adults the more olive-yellow (Caspian) compared to yellow (Herring) bill often is the first pointer.

For me it is a typical (probably adult) Caspian Gull - at least phenotypical, long legs, slender bill, bulging breast, dark eye.
The problem is that there are a few mixed colonies in Eastern Germany...

You got it right, Paddyfield Warbler. In Plain Prinia primary projection would be shorter and tail longer indeed.

Agreed. Note the proportionally small, pigeon-like head. Dark eye and very broad terminal band in tail make it an adult (subadult?) male.

A Chiffchaff for me, though unsure which ssp... Very dark legs and green in wings too dull for Bonelli's.

Don't think it's possible to decide which ssp. from these pictures. The white head is no help, as HG are variable in the timing of their moult and some stay rather white-headed.

On left tibia it seems to carry some device. It would be a typical position to attach a geolocator. There seems to be a ring on the other leg, right? Do you know something about it? Does someone else?

Wasn't aware that they can show such pale legs. Still, I suppose even they lightest-legged quite a bit darker than the Paddyfield?
