Hi Antonio. I hope you don't mind me offering an observation but looking at your images of this gull and for the sake of accuracy, it appears to have a red eye ring and yellow legs which might suggest Yellow legged Gull?

Cedofeita, Santo Ildefonso, Sé, Miragaia, São Nicolau e Vitória, Norte, Portugal

Lat: 41.14, Long: -8.61
