What is this?

First Year Gulling in Herakleion Harbour yesterday January 2, 2012!

There are two birds among others very interesting.

Compare the YLG to the right the front bird has lighter grey in mandle and is as small as an Armenian, but has pale eye and wrong leg colour for that species. Looks heavier than a Common Gull... The gull opposite will be discussed in another post.

So what is this gull?

An update, not sure if is the same bird... Jan 4, 2012:

Going back to my photos I found this bird from Nov 25, 2011 which seems to be exactly the same individual,and may give some help:

And also another difficult bird... Nov 18, 2011:
