Note the black tail, dark eye, and grey mantle.

None of these are particularly definitive, given that ALL individuals of gull species in the genus Larus start life with dark eyes and that WEGU, also, has an all-dark tail at young ages and a darker gray mantle in second-cycle plumage (as this bird is).  Here is a similarly-aged WEGU.

The bird in question seems quite big and stocky with a thick bill. The first pic makes it look more like a WEGU, while the second more like a CAGU.

My first thought was Ring-billed Gull

The tail rules out virtually all Ringers.
