Young seagull trying his wings

I was told this bird with grey, brown, and white feathers is a young seagull. He stayed about a week in our garden, Under the surveillance of his family who was perched on the roof of the buildings. Often, he tryed his large wings, flying not very high above the ground, with piercing sounds. It will take him about four years to become an elegant white and grey adult.
