Mystery Gull opinions sought

I think this is an Iceland/Herring Gull hybrid, but I don't really believe in hybrids....

The bird certainly has the jizz of an Iceland Gull, with that upright stance and wing tips nearly trailing on the floor. But clearly it is not right for that species.

Please feel free to comment.

It is a gull, so all a bit boring, and I'd ignore this except I've just seen a very similar one (but not the same bird) around Loch of St Tredwell on Papay. Are you any closer to knowing what this is?
