Birds Sightings from Kuwait: owned and managed by AbdulRahman Al-Sirhan

30/11/2010 at Sulaibikhat Bay

Armenian Gull 4, Baltic Gull 1, Caspian Gull 3, Steppe Gull 10, Heuglin’s Gull 5, Greater Sand Plover 15, Grey Plover 4

Armenian and Steppe Gulls have P10 still growing whereas Hueglin’s and Baltic Gulls are moulting P6-7 as these photographs show.

Baltic Gull Larus fuscus fuscus notice long primay projection and short legs. But it could be Heuglin’s!

    Hello Al-Shiran!

    IMO the Baltic Gull at the top could not be a heuglini. The upperparts tone is to blackish and structurally rather different from heuglini. Good for Baltic!

    Cheers
