Algarve Gull (1 Viewer)

Taken this morning at Port do Baleeira in Sagres. My opinion is Great Black Backed, based on size (2nd pic has Yellow Legged (?) in front as size comparator), but Gulls not my forte so would appreciate confirmation/correction. Thanks.

Hello,
yes it's a 1cy Great Black backed Gull for me too.
I get the right jizz impression from the head/bill profile with
  • a bulbous bill
  • a snout forehead coupled with a flat crown
  • Head seems small in relation to the body, a feature? But it adds to a Gbbg jizz imo.
And tfs the nice comparison picture!
