Somethingwild, it is a gull

Somethingwild, it is a gull (Larus) skull, with the bump on the bacl of the skull most likely a large gull. General lengths as follows, Herring Lesser BB 111-118mm, Grt BB 131-145, Common 87-93 and Black-headed 80-92. Not sure if you will get it to species without specialist help. You could try e-mailing the photos to somebody at the National Collection Tring but they are likely to ask for measurements.
