Gull ID From Turkey - YLG or HG?

Hi everybody,

I recorded this gull at Çanakkale in Turkey. These are the only significant shots that i have. It seems to me that is not a YLG but maybe a European Herring Gull? Any suggestions?

Every comment would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

very reduced black in wingtips and late primary moult - looks good for a (yellow legged) european herring gull.
