Small Gull UK

What do you make of this small winter plumaged Gull taken today in the UK at dusk? Photos are heavily cropped but otherwise straight off the camera. One photo shows more of the Gull flock to give an idea of relative size and colours shown on the birds at dusk. I only ever saw the bird in this pose before the flock was disturbed and flew even further away.

Many thanks in advance

which one do you want to know? i see mostly black-headed and common gulls with two LBBG in the 3rd pic (the darkish 1st cycle in the background at least is a presumed LBBG).

Middle-back in the closer crops - the BHG behind the front BHG and CG
