Hi Janet, I think you are correct (perhaps a 1st winter bird ?) but you should add a revised ID of Black-headed Gull and press "get recommended" for the scientific name. It is this name that truly ID's your sighting and links it to others on iSpot.

That's because you did not have a hyphen between black and headed. Add it again as a new ID and it will work. You ought to, so your picture joins others of the species.
