On behalf of John who sent in an email:

Gull, 3rd winter, long winged, dark grey wings with white on p9&p10.

The bird was seen early January on Marazion beach

Gulls are notoriously difficult to tell apart.

I'm tempted to say this is a Herring Gull in winter plumage (this ties in with the picture being taken in January). Grey wing backs with black tips and white on P9 & P10. Also a speckled head and pink feet suggest the same ID as does the location.

I've searched up some birds I've been having trouble identifying, and I think I've seen a pic of a gull like that, and, yes, it is a herring gull in winter plumage.
