Unidentified Gull Greenland

Checking the local gulls in Maniitsoq Harbor did not boost my greenlandic gull list (still need Ross' and Herring) though I did manage to find a few interesting looking birds. I only managed to see the gull depicted below flying away. At first glance I thought it was a hybrid between Glaucous and Herring but I am not really sure. The dark outer primaries and tail band suggests that there is some Herring Gull in the bird but the overall impression is that of a Glaucous. Please do comment on the bird if you have any thoughts about the id.

3/4 Maniitsoq. Clearly one of the larger gulls. Dark tail band, blackish outer primaries and large bill.

3/4 Maniitsoq. I think the wings give a Glaucous-like impression.
