While reviewing a not so recent trip to Porto I found this photo of a Gull that I am unable to identify. It was shot on May 10, 2019. I think it may be a first year Greater Black Backed Gull? I am from California and gulls have always been tough for me. Any ideas.

The bird is pretty worn making the ID more difficult, but from what I can make out with the broad fringing to the tertials, Herring Gull seems more appropriate. The bird also doesn't have the "long-legged" look of YLGU. However, I would suggest using the eBird option Herring/Yellow-legged Gull here.
