real name Jonathan Dean
Greetings. I press to being substandard at gulls and fear I may be overthinking this. But, anyway, attached bird I ID'ed as YLG in the field but felt its mantle was dark even by YLG standards (plus it's legs were very dull yellow). Is it perhaps a HG/LBB hybrid? And sorry for less than amazing pics. See also attached a snap of what again I have down as a second-winter YLG but second opinion welcome.
