Thanks Les, though I'm not sure it reveals anything not already visible in the original picture.

I suspect it is just a European Herring Gull with 'extreme' rump and tail pattern, but I'd love to...

Thanks for your comments Lou. I do agree that dark European Herring Gull should also be considered (because in all probability it most likely is one). However, I find the points by which you've...

It's at least a 2nd winter (3rd calendar year) judging by the pattern of the wing coverts that are normal in colouration.

Point taken, and yes, I can see that even for a Peregrine it's still a small, slightly built bird. However, if you juxtapose some images of Hobby next to your bird, you should see that Hobby is...

I must admit to having to have a really hard look at this one, and have come back to it several times. Each time I've come back to the same conclusion: Peregrine.

You'd normally expect this pair to...

While I agree a dark 2cy LBBG should be considered I don't think I'd leave it there just yet, before I'd considered all of the possibilities, no matter how unlikely they might seem!

Here's a dark...

The bird to the right of the GBBG is surely a Herring Gull. It appears darker than the others in the pic as it is in shadow.

Agree, and I wouldn't assume that lots of white on the head is necessarily a sign of sinensis.

Many older P c carbo will also develop lots of white here.

Common Ringed Plover (LRP has no white wing bar) well it does have a very faint one but it wouldn't show up so clearly as this bird's does.
