To my eye Howard this almost looks like an intermediary between the two, however I think it looks too “light” for OSF (particularly the bill) think EWP might be a better bet? See what others...

1st year gull ID?

Shot on the Thames Canary Wharf today, thought it looked like a clean, attenuated 1st year gull, think I've narrowed it down to either a YLGull or LBBG?

Many thanks.
