Interesting gull with stubby deep yellow legs, orange orbital, one large mirror on p10, gorgeous string of Pearl's resembling a north eastern herring gull. Mantle shade seemed to be just a pinch darker than standard herring gull. It is possible this bird is an aberrant American herring gull, will seek advice and opinions. Photos taken.
