Young gulls from Morocco

The last ones of this trip. I find very hard to distinguish species with such a young individuals.

Essaouira (Morocco), 22th January.

all of them look to be lesser black-backed gulls. the two 1st winters (pics 1 and 4) definitely are and the individual in pics 2-3 might also be a LBBG, it is a 2nd winter (3cy) and moults its tail out of the normal timing. i'm not able to 100% exclude a YLG for this bird but probably it is a LBBG.
