hi ryszard,

a dark herring gull type for me. bill is not that of a YLG (weak, pale very narrow base, rel. pointed tip), head is not striated but somewhat solid brown (looks like a bird from earlier in the year, before postjuvenile moult), belly line is not that of YLG and there are a lot of bold blotches on uppertail.
on a 2nd look: probably better fits another LBBG.

lou
