The ubiquitous seagull. Do you remember if this bird had a white or brown eye? White is an adult, and brown a juvenile. No brown plumage so this is definitely older than a juvenile, although if the eye is still brown, it would be a "first year" bird. Bright red beak also indicates an adult. I don't know how to tell male from female other than from behaviour.
