I need your help

During my walk around Belém in the capital of Portugal - Lisbon, last year, I have spotted the bird presented in my picture above. I really like this combination of nature and industrial landscape in the background. Unfortunately my knowledge about birds is not good enough to recognise this flying animal. My question to you is, what's the name of this bird? Thank you for your help!

Looks like a European herring gull. The youngsters (juvenile) are brown, later when they are adults, they are mostly white/grey.

Hi, without doing any google search or anything, that looks very much like some variety of the Seagulls we have where I live-in Michigan, United States. It is a nice shot, too!
