Iceland Gull?

My Dad found this gull a few days ago. Looks like an Iceland to me but certainly not a "classic" small billed Iceland. Not the best photos and hopefully I can get some better ones. Comments?

It could be and Iceland gull, but I am not very good on some of these gulls. But it does look like a 2nd year Iceland.

Sorry, my books are packed and all my Iceland Gulls have been adults in breeding plumage, and not Kumelien's which I'm guessing that is, if it's an Iceland Gull. Alan Tilmouth from Dusty Bins has mad gull skills, he can probably help.

and I'm not a hundred percent sure but I think the wings should project a little farther past the tail for an Iceland Gull
