Hello for all

Just going through old photos and wanted assistance in confirming and identifying the following gull . Does it fit a Heuglin’s gull or just it is a normal yellow-legged . Many yellow legged were noted on that day but this bird seemed much darker with a fierce looking face . Please can we have input from the experts .

Regards

Bassel

it looks ok for a march heuglini. but you can't exclude a western type LBBG in this plumage and posture, so, probably heuglini on location but there have been records of ringed intermedius from israel...
