Red-billed Gull x Black-billed Gull Hybrid

The F1 Hybrid

Te Papa specimen

Data and comparison to pure birds are within the observation photos

Originally collected in 1971, by L. Gurr (Louis Gurr)

Bill is shorter than a Black-billed Gull but skinnier than a Red-billed Gull.
An intermediate size/shape of the two.

Primaries show white spots that are larger than a Red-billed Gull's

Bill colour may have detreated slightly, but also appears to be an intermediate colour of the two species.

Last photo shows a comparison with the other hybrid (F1 top).

Hi @joe_fish Suspect this is 'Actinia sp.' also known as Paterson Inlet anemone Steve de C. Cook, Invertebrates 1, page 164. Photo credits to Tom Bliss as I had the close-up lens on and too big. Certainly is quite large given the 150mm scale ruler placed at side. Depth 6m, clean sand substrate, strong current area. Also @chicky67 to look at on return!
