2cy heuglini with replaced tertials and three visible inner secondaries (in flight the other secondaries and primaries seem to be still juvenile), replaced tail feathers, innerhalf of the gc, all visible mc and llc and inner lc. Several (assumed 2nd gen) feathers already grey, makes this a classic 2cy heuglini in spring.
