There is a place near Moscow (Biserovo fishery ponds) where all gull enthusiasts go. The most abundant spieces are Common Gulls, Black-headed Gulls, Herring Gulls and Caspian Gulls. Depending on the season and the luck one can see fuscus LBBG, Heuglin's Gulls and more rarely GBBG and Glaucous Gulls.

I suspect there should be 1cy Steppe Gulls (barabensis) in autumn. Is there a way to separate them from Caspian Gulls?
Also no-one registered YLGs, which seems strange. I suspect we just cannot single them out from huge flocks of Herring/Caspians

Here is the typical mixture of Herring and Caspian Gull, photographed in October
