Iceland ? Kumlien's gene type Gull revisited

note how the iris colour appears to change from black to dark amber in sun and at close range v more distant views; the bill colour also seems to have changed from yesterday's poor light -- also the primary colour seems to vary with light; is the head shape slightly more Kumlieni ---is the bill too long and robust for glaucoides? or is it just a male - and note the darker outer webs to the centres of the outer primaries in flight from above -- an interesting bird

Please note that cameras are not allowed on the ABP docks without an ABP photo permit --
