Worn gulls in spring plumage

Bleached gulls in early spring
This bewildering selection were all photographed at Calvert Landfill on Sunday 15 March by Tim WattsCalvert landfill-mar 15

Gull A - 3 shots of weird 1stW gull. White cap against juv plumage stood out. Also
maybe weirdly a bit of Caspian jizz? just a Herring ?

2 shots of very light 1stW Herring Gull. Not sure if same bird in both pics.

2 shots of gull that made my heart jump for split second. Looked like dark backed small gull
with eye mask!!
but settled on 2nd-winter Lesser Black-backed Gull (Tim Watts)
