I am not an expert so wait for comments from more experienced birders. This bird looks more like a Ring-billed than a Mew Gull.  Mew's have a shorter neck and a more compact body. Also, a rounder head and a more petite bill. Great pictures.

This is a 1st winter Ring-billed Gull.

A 1st winter Mew Gull would have a darker belly and a more rounded head. Also the bill is a bit hefty for Mew Gull.

Agreed. Nice shots!!
