Second-winter apparent Viking Gull, Stiffkey Saltmarsh, Norfolk, 21st January 2012 (Steve Gantlett). First reported as a Glaucous Gull, this bird looked too small and rangy, yet it is too long-legged and short-winged for an Iceland Gull. The eye and bill colours, plus the patterning in the tertials and greater coverts, confirm it is a second-winter bird. The size and structure recall argenteus Herring Gull, as do elements of its plumage and bill pattern, so Glaucous or Iceland Herring hybrid is the best guess for this gull.
