A couple of ID queries

The first couple were seen in southern India, the second two in Oman.

Help appreciated!

TIA

Andy

#3 is a Black-headed Gull


The others are all Larus species ('large white-headed gulls') - over to others for those!

Hi Andy,

Not a lot to go on with these but to me all 3 of the biggies look like heuglini? (the adults maybe even barabensis although you would expect a small p9 mirror at least for that?).... The last one has long winged jizz of fuscus but the (short) tongues in outer primaries probably better fit for heuglini?
Best i can do i'm afraid....over to Lou!

Cheers
Dean
