|Sildemåge Gaviota Sombría|
2011-05-26 Kalvebod Fælled, Amager, Denmark
Adult. The back color is difficult to judge neutrally here, but the weak contrast between the arm and the hand indicate that it is an intermedius. Fuscus undoubtedly would be darker. And even though all northwestern subspecies occur in Denmark, it is still intermedius that is the most common in eastern Denmark.

Adult with completely white tail. With only small white spots on P9 and P10 plus very small white tips to the remiges and the fact that there is not that much contrast between the color of the arm and the hand, this bird could be a fuscus. On the other hand, looking at the photo with the other gulls the bird looks more round and shows some contrast between back and remiges which lead toward intermedius.

Adult without other details than a completely white tail, and a very small apical spot on P10 which goes best with a fuscus.
