[CT Birds] Thayer's Gull ?

There seems to be a lot of reluctance to call this bird a Thayer's on the available photos.  Many votes for an odd Herring Gull.  In the field however it did not present a Herring appearance and it was (especially in flight) more of a case of wondering if it was a dark Iceland.

Unless the bird shows up again or Donna's photos are any better than ours, it is probably a lost cause.
