Glaucous Gulls on Orkney (1 Viewer)

I need to retire! ....oh I have!
United Kingdom
I have just returned from a week on Orkney and came across these 2 Gulls, I believe both are Glaucous, but I have trouble with identifying Gulls, so a confirmation would be appreciated.

Thanks
Tom

Yep, Glaucs.

Iceland would have less bright pink (more blackish) on the bill, and slightly longer, narrower wings.
