Young sp: The post-juvenile moult includes the body, LC, MC and usually the inner GC (92% of our birds at Ottenby have included 2-6 inner GC in the moult, range included 0-10 GC). TT or RR are rarely included (perhaps only replaced if lost).
Adult SC: The post-breeding moult includes the whole plumage.

Number of GC included in the post-juvenile moult shown as percentage of 1cy birds at Ottenby 2000-2013 (n=1479).


No plumage differences.
