Wing Colour

Hi

I'm not great with gulls but is the wing colour not a little too dark for a common gull?

Wing colour and more ...

I'm no expert either but think Ophrys has it right. Dark wing (not Dark enough for Great Black-Back) and Yellow legs mark it as a Lesser Black-Back - there is size too but I think that can often be very tought when there is nothing to compare it with.

Feel free to look at my ongoing (hopefully improving) collection of pictures on Flickr:
