Yellow-legged Gull michahellis-type adult, January 09 2013, Ashdod, Israel. Picture: Amir Ben Dov.

Much black in wingtip, red orbital ring. Somewhat droopy bill reminds of cachinnans, and leg colour not really matching average michahellis, therefore maybe a bird from the Russian boreal and steppe zone?
