Winter has not ended yet; another Iceland Gull

A short late afternoon trip today, and I decided to bike on the beach in search of gulls. And succeeded! This boldly patterned 1st-winter was at Scheveningen and Meijendel during January and as far as I know has not been seen for several weeks now. Today it was at Heemskerk, and it is a beauty!
first-winter Iceland Gull - the primary pattern is exactly the same as the remarkable Scheveningen bird in January.

These are my first pictures with the D500 (that replaced a D3). I am very pleased with the autofocus accuracy and image quality (moderate crop on ISO1000, JPEG).
