David Jardine's picture

Juvenile

The shortish orange bill and blackish orange legs indicate this is a newly fledged youngster. The rounded wingtips (in June) - caused by non-fully formed feathers, also allow them to be distinguished at distance from the adults which have 'square-ended' wings and often have moulted some of their primaries.
