This photo was taken on Skomer Island on the 04/06/16, at first I thought it was a GBBG Larus marinus but the legs don't look the right colour. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Snowy

Marinus has thicker bill and head, maybe more white on wingtip too. Looks like Larus fuscus graellsii to me.

Thanks Karwin, now that you have pointed out the difference in bill thickness I can see it, thanks.

Kind Regards Snowy
