First-winter Caspian Gull
Adult Med Gull 
Not sure. Maybe a Yellow-legged Gull but looks too pale and anaemic- perhaps a splash of another taxon in there? 
Juvenile Herring Gull- argentatus? Large with retarded moult-most probably of high latitude origin 
Similar to immediately above but moulting some mantle feathers and scaps- argentatus? Probably. 
2nd/3rd winter Herring Gull- argentatus
