Possible Iceland Gull

On Thursday 19th July I saw a white-winged gull from a dolphin survey boat a mile or so off New Quay / Llangranog. 

I only picked it up after after it passed overhead so it wasn't a great view, but It did not appear to be large enough for a glaucous. It was generally white with a few apparently random pale brown markings.

I wonder if it could have been the Iceland gull seen previously at Newport, Pembrokeshire?
