Black-headed Gull

Spotted this black-headed gull on the beach in Nelson Mandela Bay. I think I’m right about the identification (dark ‘lozenge’ behind eye and extending vertically from eye, red and black beak and red legs)  – please give me a shout if I’m wrong. They are not often seen in South Africa with only a handful of sightings recorded.
