My mates sent me this photo of a bird, not 100% on what bird it is, any ideas?
Maybe juvenile Osprey?

Thanks
Nick

Certainly looks like an immature gull but doesn't look anything like a Great Black-back plumage-wise to me, but at a loss to see which species. Was it taken in the UK?
 

HH75

Juvenile Lesser Black-backed Gull due to, among other features, quite dark greater coverts, dark inner primaries etc
