Herring gull or yellow-legged gull? (SPAIN) (1 Viewer)

Hi all,

Yesterday, I saw this gull i north Catalonia, in a place where I've never seen a Herring gull before. I saw so clear it has pink legs, so I took my camera but it was quite far, so the only pictures I had time to take are these ones, before it flew away (I know they are terrible pictures)

What do you think? In the same building there was a yellow-legged gull, so I share it too, so you can compare.

Are there adult yellow-legged gulls with pink legs? I know there are adult yellow-legged gulls with really palid legs, but I mean pink legs.

Thank you!

The one on the left looks like a Herring Gull, grey colour tone, leg colour/length but it’s hard to be sure from this angle.
