Nicely caught, however I think it's likely to be Black Backed Gull (Lesser or Greater), Black Headed Gulls have a much slender bill.

I have just realised that when I answered a comment on another Forum.  Thanks Rye.  You absolutely right I'm sure.

This is a juvenile Black Headed Gull, you can see the slimmer beak, which is red/black and also the spot behind it's eye - adults have this when they are not in their breeding plumage.

Yours could also be a juvenile Herring Gull or Yellow Legged Gull as they all have a similar colouring and that thick bill.
