Odd Herring Gull
Hi, Advice please.
An odd Herring Gull at Rothesay Harbour, Bute yesterday. It had pale yellow legs, its mantle was a shade darker than the resident Herring Gulls and it was similar in size to the smaller female gulls. I've never seen a Herring Gull with legs this colour before and the few Yellow Legged Gulls that I have seen have had legs a similar colour to Lesser Black-backed Gull. Is this something more than an L.a. argenteus?
