An adult Eastern Caspian Gull (Larus cachinnans cachinnans), photographed by Martin Reid in Bahrain, early March 1999. Small mirrors on P10 and P9 (with large black subterminal bands), plus black bleeding up the outer edge of P5 point to barabensis, yet the gray tongue on the inner web of P8 appears to be extensive, and the black outer edge of P7 looks very thin and short; also note the whitish crescents basal to the black subterminal bands on P7,P6, P5 - all features of cachinnans:
