Great Black-headed Gull

Great Black-headed Gull (aka Pallas's Gull) has yet to be recorded in Britain. They are getting on for a Great Black-backed Gull in size terms and they have an all-black head (rather than a brown hood) so they're pretty striking!

Black Headed Gull?

Do you think that the head is more black than chocolate brown?
Is it possible that this is a Mediterranean Gull or even a Little Gull?
