two lesser black-backed gulls with adjacent herring gulls

Observation details

Two adults standing on ice adjacent to herring gulls. Slightly smaller than herring gulls, streamlined profile, slate grey mantle, darker than herring gull mantles near by, seen in good light with scope. Yellow legs, yellow bill with red spot on lower mandible. Colours intense (breeding plumage). Poor photos taken. Species seen on Friday and Saturday in similar location. Photo is highly enlarged and lighting should not be argued as a factor. Seen clearly in scope and binoculars.
