Herring Gull (Larus argentatus) with extensive dusky 'winter streaking'

This 3rd winter Herring Gull was seen at Fjellerup Strand on the north coast of Djursland on December 18, 2010.

The extensive dusky 'winter streaking' created a striking uniform nicotine shawl which together with the dark tertial centre and rather long primary projection gave some degree of smithsonianus impression.

Could someone provide a link to photos illustrating a similar patterned European Herring Gull?
