Gull - UK - thoughts (1 Viewer)

This gull was brought to my attention and when I looked, the very white head, dark eye and the bill pattern caught my attention. I noted the tertials too. The pictures are not the best but I took them handholding my phone to the scope. In the one picture the gull is not trying to down a Jackdaw in one!! LOL. I would appreciate thoughts as to the species of this juvenile and the age. Thank you.
