The mantle/scps pattern is rather THGU-like, but some GWGUs have a similar pattern (but normally paler-centered):

It was a large gull - as big as the largest of the six other HERGs present - and it was very aggresive.

Note the muddy grizzled greater coverts - very like SBGU and GWGU

The tail is clearly not all-dark, and seemed to be banded - but the details of the pale base have not yet been determined; combined with the too-dark-for-GWGU primaries, I am leaning towards a GWGU X HERG hybrid:
