most of the blackish mantled are baltic gulls but not all. there seem to be at least 2 paler mantled LBBG types, either intermedius or heuglini (see last pic), i tend towards the latter.

Thanks a lot! How about these light young birds (pics 3,4,5,9)? Aren't they heuglini too?

no, from what is visible they all look like caspians.

Thank you Lou!
But how may I change your "could" into "must"? :)
What posture of bird could be helpful?
