idintification Caspian Gull?

Hi,

i have photographed this gull at lake Kerkini (northern Greece), last January.

I have identified it as a Caspian Gull, but i would like to assure it.

So, i am hoping for some opinions from people who are more knowledgeable or experts on gulls.

Thank you in advance,

George

I dont necessarily qualify as either, but to me it looks like a (3rd winter?) Caspian.
