A 2cy LBBG in complete second generation plumage, ready for second winter. P8 is missing and p9 is still juvenile; moult score is 36 and relatively high. The tail has been renewed. Note the spaghetti pattern on the greater coverts, a patterned like some michahellis or argenteus may show in second generation greater coverts. Not many LBBG show a complete replaced greater covert bar already by mid-July.
