Gull, Stavanger Norway (1 Viewer)

Hi

I'm new to the forum but I can see I am going to be a regular visitor. I'm just starting to try to get to grips with gulls in their various flavours, and spotted this yesterday near Stavanger, SW Norway among a small group of common and black headed gulls. My guess is first winter Ring Billed gull but could it just be a first winter common gull? Or is it something else I have overlooked? Sorry, I don't have any other angles or pictures available. Thanks for your suggestions.

Ah yes, thanks all. I dismissed the obvious answer because I had missed this second winter Herring gull variation. I knew that gulls are going to be a serious challenge!
