The is it, isn't it gull

Seagulls, I mainly ignore them unless I am trying to add to my Big Waters or Prestwick Carr lists. A candidate for Yellow legged gull hangs around at Big Waters but the experts say its a hybrid, something to do with the mirrors on P45 or eyelash length not really sure. I got a record shot the other day what do you think it is ? AJJ pointed out a Tufted duck that had a red band stuck in its beak and around its neck, it did not seem comfortable. It would shake its head and open and close its beak a lot. Even the smallest bit of litter can cause wildlife problems.
What am I ?

Just visible the red band (200x zoom action)
