Nice in flight capture, but it looks like a Kittiwake to me

Hi Mike.. I was torn between Herring Gull & Yellow-Legged Gull. I ruled out Kittiwake as I had a clear image of one on the same day. Kittiwake has short blackish legs, This has pale pink, although hard to make out on these images, as well as the red spot underside of beak. Kittiwake has a pale yellow-green beak.

But now I'm unsure and going through the other images to positively determine leg colour ... D'oh ! Tongue
