This presumed first-basic/first alternate Baltic Gull (Larus fuscus) was photographed by Martin Reid in Bahrain on March 5, 1999. I had overlooked this image previously, but during a recent re-study of my photos, I noticed that this bird is ringed; it has a metal ring on the right leg and a white plastic-type ring with black characters on the left leg - this is the standard ring combination for Finnish-ringed fuscus; I am struggling to make out the figures on the plastic band; I now realise my earlier speculation about the actual number was not wise - any suggestions on the ring number, or the age of this bird?:
