Apologies for images - at extreme range of SX 50
Probably just a very dark LBBG ( didn't look big enough for GBBG ), but confirmation appreciated.

Looks more GBBG to me, but hard to be 100% sure from these images. A seemingly hefty bird with dark back favours GBB and so do the apparently pinkish legs & relatively short wings

it's a GBBG. apart from structural difference (big head and bill), the outermost primary has a large white tip.

Thanks for confirmation guys , I was comparing size to nearby LBBG, didn't look any bigger
